Why switch to solar power?
Whether you live off the grid, in a tiny urban apartment, or a large suburban home, solar power is a significant investment that can dramatically increase the value of your home, reduce your electricity bills, and have a positive impact on the environment.
1. Increase your property value
Money is what makes the world go round, right? Yep, studies have shown that commercial buildings and homes with solar panels have higher property values and sell twice as fast as other homes in the same neighbourhood. Solar Panels give you a competitive edge in the marketplace and provide a real boost to your bank balance if you ever decide to sell.
According to Holly Jones from realestate.com, houses with solar panels are also more popular with renters. “Three quarters of renters said they would pay additional rent to live in a property with solar energy, with two out of five saying they’d be willing to pay an extra $10 a week,” says Ms Jones.
2. Reduce your electricity bills
With solar panels, you’re able to produce your own power and completely eliminate (or radically reduce) your electricity bills. In other words, your solar panels will pay for themselves! They protect you from the rising cost of electricity and, since your bill is guaranteed to increase every year, will help you to continually grow your savings over the lifespan of your system (approx. 25 – 30 years).
3. Harness the sun’s free energy
Solar power is one of the cleanest and greenest sources of energy. It’s sustainable, renewable, and available in abundance. According to the Australian Government, “the Sun gives us 10,000 times the energy annually than Australian’s consume in a year”. Solar power also reduces your carbon footprint, combats greenhouse gas emissions, and reduces our collective dependence on fossil fuels. In short, anyone can access the sun’s power from anywhere in the world — all for free!
Now, I don’t know about you, but I think that sounds pretty darn good. Free power, no electricity bills, high investment value, environmental benefits — what’s not to love?
