While solar technology is widely criticized as being expensive or inefficient, it has come a long way and now proven to be extremely beneficial – not only for the environment, but for many households and businesses as well.
There are so many advantages of solar panels and solar batteries. More and more people are making their contribution to clean energy, reducing the burning of fossil fuels and saving at the same time.
Here are the top 5 benefits of solar and battery:
- Save with lower utility bills
- Make money with your excess electricity
- Add value to your home
- Reduce the impact on the planet
- CLEAN renewable energy source
When it comes to research and development in solar PV, Australia is a world leader. And since Australia is one of the sunniest countries in the world, solar power is an ideal and smart choice.
Is Solar Power Affordable?
These are exciting times when it comes to the introduction of solar energy.
Because of the federal incentives and discounts available in most states, Australia has the lowest solar prices in the world. For this reason, according to energy.gov.au, more than 2.59 million rooftop solar panels were installed across Australia in October 2020.
With solar battery storage systems like the Tesla Powerwall 2, it is also possible to further reduce your electricity bill using energy storage systems. You can run your house almost entirely with solar energy. Read our Tesla Powerwall story.
In NSW, the government recently approved the Empowering Homes solar and battery program. The program aims to provide eligible NSW households with interest-free loans for solar battery systems. Check your eligibility and learn more.
Natural Solar makes the change to a solar system much easier. Find out if you are eligible for upfront discounts and ongoing returns for solar panel systems and battery systems.
So … how many solar panels do I need to power my house?
In general, you want to produce enough solar power to cover 100% of your electricity bill. Your solar panel system needs to produce enough electricity to meet your household's energy consumption. Your energy bill is key to knowing how many kilowatt hours (kWh) your home is using. You will then have an idea of what type of solar system you need and how many solar panels will be needed to power your home.
Typically, the average Australian home will need around 15 to 20 solar panels to fully offset power consumption (depending on location and roof size). For more information, please a Fast solar offer today.
What about battery storage like the Tesla Powerwall 2?
Yes to the battery storage system and yes to the Tesla Powerwall 2. For energy-conscious consumers, the storage of home batteries is a hot topic. This is especially true for those who have an existing solar system. If you already have solar on your roof, an energy storage system offers an obvious benefit for storing your unused electricity in a storage battery that can be used at night or on days with little sunlight. Of course, this also applies to new solar module owners.
