Reduce or eliminate your energy bill
Depending on which solar power system size you install, you will see your power bill reduced, if not eliminated, straight away.
Protect yourself from the rising cost of power
Installing a grid-connected solar power system means protecting yourself from the rising rates of the retail electricity market. As well as using your own power, you will be exporting power to the grid. Your system will be earning credits that help pay for power that you may need to purchase at times.
"Since 2002 average residential electricity prices have risen by 4.7 percent a year in "real" terms (over and above the general rate of inflation). That's a huge hike in costs to consumers over this period." - Consumer.org.nz
Increase the value of your home
Solar power is a worthwhile investment, even if you were to move a few years after the solar power system is installed. You can expect a solar power system to last 25 years, so if you choose to move out after 2 years, the next owner can expect the system to last 23. It is an attractive and valuable resource for new homebuyers.
Reduce your carbon footprint
Burning fossil fuels for energy is the world's greatest contributor to carbon dioxide emissions.
Photovoltaic solar power systems offer an alternative and clean form of power with no harmful carbon emissions. The energy source of solar power is the sun, which is 100% renewable.
Solar panels have minimal impact on wildlife, whereas some other forms of renewable energy, such as hydroelectricity and damming, can have serious impacts on the biodiversity of the chosen area.
The production of solar panels and their components comes with a small, negative impact on the environment. However, the positive environmental impacts of a solar power system far outweigh this negative impact.
Earn a great return on investment from solar power
Compared to term deposits and selected stock market investments, solar power systems are a great investment.
The price of solar power systems is decreasing, with the price of electricity increasing. Investing in a solar power system can offer you a return on investment of around 10% p.a. Click here to learn more.
