Significant Benefits of solar energy

Australia is the perfect place for reaping the benefits of solar energy as it receives ample sunlight to generate electricity. It is a renewable source of energy that is available free of cost. Our dependence on fossil fuels is killing our environment. Burning of fossil fuels contributes to global warming. Moreover, fossil fuels are non-renewable sources and we can’t rely on them for a lifetime.

There are ample benefits of solar energy

Generate your own electricity

The foremost benefit of solar energy is – you can generate your own power. We can’t control the rising power prices, but we can switch to a renewable and clean source of energy that is solar energy. Avoid future price spikes by installing a solar panel system on the roof of your house or office building and can generate your own electricity.

Reduce Power Bills

The second major benefit of solar energy is- you can reduce your utility bills considerably. As you know solar power system generates electricity while the sun is shining. If you do not consume energy during the day then you can install a battery to store the power produced during the day to use at night. A solar power system with battery storage would make you energy independent. Know more about the solar PV system with battery storage here.

You can also sell the excess energy produced during the day to your electricity provider and get Feed-in tariff.  If you live in NSW, you can use the NSW Government’s free service to compare the plans and feed-in tariff offers. Click here.
