The cost of electricity along with other utilities is becoming more and more expensive, which is why you’ll see a lot of rooves throughout Everton Park with solar panels.
Since the Solar Energy Scheme started, there have been a lot of homes taking advantage of the rebates that are on offer. One such rebate for grid-connected PV solar systems is changing in the middle of the year though, so to capitalise on the highest rebate you can get, you might want to get in now because after July 1st 2011, you won’t reap the same rewards.
Benefits of grid-connected PV solar systems:
1. Because solar energy is renewable, it is great for the environment because you’re not using resources like coal to create your home’s energy.
2. Producing solar energy and putting it back into the energy grid, you’ll not only save money, but you’ll also make money and recoup your costs faster.
3. Because solar panels don’t have moving parts like wind turbines, maintenance is far less costly.
There are a number of other benefits
, which you can find on the Solar Switch Australia website, along with the details on the changes to the Solar Rebate Scheme
that are coming into place from the 1st
of July 2011. You might see a lot more PV solar systems going up around Everton Park over the next few months!
