Solar energy is a clean and renewable resource, so it makes sense to take advantage of this technology whenever possible. If you’re thinking about installing solar panels on your home, here are some things you need to know.
1. Solar panels can help reduce your energy bill
If you’re looking for a place that receives 300+ days of sunshine each year, then look no further than Queensland. From the Gold Coast to Brisbane and Toowoomba – all areas in this state have more than enough natural sunlight. This makes it a perfect spot to install solar panels.
Why wait any longer to save money and help the planet at the same time? We all know that traditional electricity offers zero savings, no matter how much you spend. But with solar power there are incredible benefits for you to consider. Not only will your household finally be able to affordably use less of it (and pay off installation costs), but every unit saved could also amount into hundreds or even thousands over time!
So what are you waiting for?
2. They can increase the value of your home or business
Did you know that adding solar panels to your home or business can increase its value? According to recent studies, a home with solar panels attached is worth about $15,000 more than one without. If you’re thinking of selling in the near future, installing solar panels may be a good investment! Not only will you get a return on your investment when you sell, but you’ll also be saving money on your energy bills each month.

3. They’re a great way to help the environment
When we use fossil fuels to produce electricity, it accounts for the largest proportion of greenhouse gas emissions. For every kWh that is generated in an average year – 33% comes from conventional sources such as coal-fired plants, while 18% comes from other modes like nuclear power. With just a 6 kW solar system installed in your home or business, you can already save up 10 tons CO2.
Solar energy is a clean and renewable form of power. It reduces our reliance on non-renewable resources like coal, oil or natural gas while also providing us with an infinite amount that can be used to meet all your needs! The best part? You’re making the world better for future generations by installing this system today. So, what are you waiting for?
4. You may be eligible for financial incentives
The Australian government and state governments offer financial incentives to help reduce the cost of installing renewable energy systems. The STCs are allocated based on when you purchase an eligible system, so it’s important that your location is correct in order for all potential savings from this program!
5. Solar panels are becoming more and more affordable
As solar panel technology continues to improve and become more affordable, an increasing number of homeowners are choosing to install them on their roofs. While the cost of installing solar panels still represents a significant investment, the potential savings in energy costs can be substantial.
