It seems like everywhere you turn nowadays, everyone has gone solar. We don’t just mean pool heating systems; we’re talking about air conditioning, vehicles, rubbish bins, chimneys, chargers, pumps, radios, refrigerators – the list goes on.
Today, more than two million households in Australia have solar hot water systems and solar PV systems on their rooftop. It’s certainly a welcome change, with advantages that benefit not only your pockets but also the economy and the environment.
If you’ve heard about pros of solar energy before, here’s a friendly reminder why it’s time to take it seriously:
Protect against high electricity bills
Let’s face it: utility costs take up a bulk of your monthly expenses. Using a solar panel system lets you generate free power for your system’s entire life cycle, which can last over 25 years. If your energy consumption goes beyond the solar energy you produce, that’s still a lot of money saved.
Protect against carbon emissions
You often hear that a solar energy system uses clean, pure energy from the sun, but how does that really affect us? It reduces our dependence on fossil fuel, where traditional electricity is sourced from. When we burn fossil fuel, it releases harmful gases that become the biggest cause of air pollution and global warming. One way to combat this? Switching from traditional electricity to solar.
Protect against rising energy costs
Residential electricity prices in Western Australia are expected to go up by 6.2% annually. One factor driving this is our dependence on fossil fuels. Because they’re limited resources, continuous usage can lead to unpredictable market fluctuations, causing prices to skyrocket over time.
If you invest in solar energy now, you can protect yourself against rising costs and unfavourable market changes. Especially for people with fluctuating cash flow, switching to solar helps you better forecast and manage your expenses.
Going solar can protect you in many ways, whether your motivation is personal, economical or environmental. Be a part of the solution, even if it’s as simple as using solar energy to heat your pool.
