Australians are choosing solar energy.
The number of people having solar panels installed on their homes is increasing year by year. The reason for the increased interest is due to concerns over the price of electricity and in an attempt to reduce their impact on climate change.
When it comes to choosing the right solar panel system for each household, there needs to be a personal approach taken to suit both the present and future needs of that household.
In considering the size of the solar panel system needed, the amount of energy the household uses will play a big factor in the decision. In order to make the best decision, it helps to look at the space available and see how it can be used to get the best solar panel system for that household.
Look here for some examples of how many panels you might need depending on the size of your house.
Depending on the territory you are in, there are a number of solar rebates and incentives that may be available to you. Applying for a rebate can significantly reduce the cost of installing a solar system.
Solar rebates can help you with the cost of purchasing and installing the solar power system and can save you thousands of dollars. These rebates have provided the support needed to allow Australians to switch to renewable energy. To find out what you are eligible for in your area, here is some information.
Small Scale Renewable Energy Scheme
For those considering installing a solar energy system on their property may be able to receive a benefit under the small-scale renewable energy scheme (SRES) which helps with the purchase cost. When an eligible system is installed, this also allows for the creation of small-scale technology certificates (STCs) that have a value and can be sold or assigned. These have a value when they are sold or assigned and so can both make and save money for that household, depending on how much energy is used and saved.
There are also things called feed-in tariffs which are generally available for residential solar panel systems. The electricity produced by your solar panels will be used in the home first and then any excess there is will be exported to the grid. The household will then be given a percentage amount of money in return for this excess energy.
