With summer on the way and energy prices continuing to rise; if you haven’t already invested in solar power – now is the time! In Australia we enjoy more sunshine than any other continent on earth, so nothing makes more sense than tapping into the abundant energy the sun provides to power our home and minimise not only our utility bills but our carbon footprint.
Benefits from investing in solar power:
There is an upfront cost to installing solar power, so it is important that you not only do your research into the various providers/installers to ensure you are investing in a quality product, but also you need to maximise the returns on your investment.
Maximising your return:
To reduce your payback period and increase your investment return, you can make your household an energy-efficient home. Small actions and lifestyle changes can drastically reduce your electricity consumption.
There are a number of things you can do around your home:
Buyers and tenants are more conscious about environmental issues as well as the increase in power bills; installing solar power is not just an investment you can start to benefit from immediately – it is also an investment in infrastructure that will enhance the appeal of your home to buyers and tenants.
In a country like Australia…it’s a no-brainer!
