Whether its winter or summer, one thing Gold Coast and Tweed Heads residents can never get too much of is the Sun light. From the beach to theme parks, a day in the Hinterland, to a day on the boat, Queenslanders know how to take advantage of those perfect Sun-filled days.
So, why not put this valuable resource to work? It’s time to decrease your energy bills and increase your positive impact on the environment.
Put simply, solar power is the conversion of the Sunlight into electricity. Solar panels utilise Solar Photovoltaics (PVs) to convert light into usable electricity. It is the easiest way to reduce the power bill at your home or business. It is the cleanest source of renewable energy, and is surprisingly affordable.
Installing solar panels will take you one step closer to decreasing your carbon footprint, electricity bills and reliance on the energy grid.
Why Should I Go Solar?
Many home and business owners are making the switch for two reasons.
Firstly, you can decrease your power bills and your impact on the environment by using less power from the electricity grid. Contrary to popular belief, most new solar systems installed on the Gold Coast and Tweed Heads regions are connected to the grid. This means you still have access to (and can be billed by) your designated electricity provider.
However, by putting the Sun to work for you, you only need to take power from the grid when you use more than your solar power system can produce. As you only pay for electricity taken from the grid, you will see an instant decrease in your energy bills.
Secondly, you will be able to contribute power to the grid (and potentially receive rewards). If your solar power system generates more energy than you need, you can feed additional power back into the grid. If so, you are eligible for a feed-in tariff or more knowingly a solar rebates.
So, by simply installing a solar system in your home or business, you can save and make money simultaneously.If your solar power system is entirely off-grid, you will rely on batteries to supply power when your system cannot produce enough.
Your solar system will pay for itself in no time. With the added bonus of increasing your environmental awareness while decreasing greenhouse gas emissions, how could you go wrong?
