Solar Power For Home
Will Solar Power Help Me?
No doubt you are viewing this page to try and understand whether installing a home solar power system is a good idea.
Finding the funds to invest in the future with a smaller immediate payoff is always difficult and you need to be sure that a solar power installation in your home is a good decision.
Reducing Your Monthly Costs
Unlike other major household costs such as rates, water and gas, your electricity costs can be managed and even significantly reduced when you install a solar power system.
Firstly, your new solar power system will immediately reduce your electricity costs.
Additionally, your solar power system will deliver a financial benefit from the solar power that you do not use during each billing cycle as this is sent back to the power grid giving you credits on your power bill thus reducing your spend even more.
And a home solar power installation will also give you some protection against the rising cost of electricity.
Can I Still Get a Government Grant to Help With the Up Front Costs?
The Federal Government still supports your purchase of a solar system by providing a sizeable rebate.
And, if you qualify, the grant can be taken from your purchase price up front as we will claim this for you so that you are only required to fund the balance of the purchase price.
This reduces the burden of the initial investment and helps you avoid the complexity involved in recovering the rebate.
For a 5kW solar system the government rebate can be as much as $3,000 to $4,000 and this translates directly into savings for you.
But you do need to move quickly as the percentage you can claim reduces each year so act fast before this valuable incentive is no longer available.

There are not that many investments which provide the return that a solar system achieves, and without the worry of investment risk
Solar Power is a Smart Investment
There are not that many investments which provide the return that a solar system achieves, and without the worry of investment risk.
A 5kW solar power system may return savings of $1500 per annum on a purchase price of $5000.
This is a potential 30% return on your investment.
This means you may pay for your solar power system within 3-4 years which leaves you with many years of cost-free savings over the life of your installation.
Solar Power Is Great for our Planet
The constant use of fossil fuels is a primary reason for the level of carbon which surrounds us in our day-to-day lives.
Power generation is a significant user of fossil fuels.
By installing a solar system you are doing your bit to reduce the amount of fossil fuel required to generate electricity.
This means you will be assisting in an overall reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
