Solar Panels Are Practical

01

Solar power is not the only renewable energy source out there. However, when you compare it to others like hydro and wind energy, solar is easily the most practical option. Solar equipment is also more readily available and cost-effective. You have a much better chance of finding a solar panel installer in your area than you are finding someone to install a wind turbine.

Keep in mind that solar panels do not have moving parts that require constant maintenance. And what about the quick installation process? When you take everything into account, it is no surprise why residents and business owners in Australia prefer solar as their choice for renewable energy.

Panels Take Up Very Little Space

02

One of the great things about using solar panels is that you do not require extra space. For the most part, the panels are mounted to the roof of your house or business. And if you need more panels, a small frame structure can be used which stands on the ground.

You Gain More Independence From The Grid

03

Power can go off at unpredictable times, and most of the time there is nothing you can do about it. Technical glitches and extreme weather conditions can lead to a total shut-down in your area. However, if you have a solar array in place, you can go on with business as usual.

Save Money On Energy Costs

04

It’s important to think about solar panels as a long-term investment. Yes, the initial cost can be somewhat high depending on the size of the array you want to install. However, once the array is in place, you will substantially reduce the electricity you need from the grid. And remember, the sun is not going to ask for any maintenance fees. Just think of all the money you save over the course of 20 years.

Solar Panels Can Withstand The Elements

05

Solar panels are designed to be tough. For example, most panels come with an aluminium frame and a thick tempered glass cover to protect the silicone cells inside. Although panels are not indestructible, they can withstand extreme weather such as hail and strong winds.

Utilise Solar Energy For Years To Come

06

A common question for many home and business owners is how long can solar panels harvest rays from the sun? The rough estimate for how long a panel can be used is about 20 years. This is a considerably long time to have access to free electricity.

Storage Capability

07

It is not mandatory to get a battery bank when you install solar panels. Instead, you can use solar energy on demand during the day, then switch to grid power at night. However, if you want solar power throughout the night, you are at liberty to add some storage capacity. With the right battery bank, you can store power for several days. There are many battery options to choose from, making it easy to find one according to your budget and needs.

A Renewable Energy Source

08

No matter how much we avoid the topic, it is critical to invest in renewable energy sources right now. The longer we depend on fossil fuels to keep the lights on, the more we reduce our chances of a sustainable future. So, when you install solar panels, you reduce your carbon footprint. At the same time, you provide a better future for yourself and your family.

Get Paid For Electricity You Do Not Use

09

The Australian government is motivating more and more people to install solar power by offering a rebate on what you spend. Additionally, you can build credit or get paid by electricity suppliers when you feed surplus solar energy into the grid. That’s right. Electricity retailers will happily pay for the additional energy your solar array generates. Just be sure to compare retailers first. Some are going to pay more for the energy you deliver, which is something to consider if you want to make some extra money.

Solar panels are not perfect, and cloudy days will influence how much energy your array can harvest. However, for a sunny place like Hervey Bay, cloudy days should rarely be a problem.
