The top 9 benefits of a professional Solar Installation

Solar installation has many benefits that exceed only lowering your monthly bills. Take a look at some of the reasons why we love solar energy and want you to experience it too!

1. Increased Home and Business Valuation

With the world turning its head towards greener energy solutions, consumers want to be up to date. When installing a solar system to your property, you may see your home or business become more desirable.

Not only are solar panels great for saving money but they look pleasing to the eye. This could certainly help your property stand out from the crowd!

2. More cost savings

With feed-in tariffs available for excess electricity produced, you can further reduce your electricity bills. Additionally, if solar panels are installed on a business or investment property, then they may be tax deductible. Also, there may be solar grants and other rebates available so get in touch to see how we can make your next solar installation more affordable.

3. Low maintenance

Dust can prevent your solar panels from accessing the maximum amount of light. As a result, you will need to clean your solar panels about once every six months. Drier, dustier areas may require more regular cleaning whereas areas with a lot of rain may require less cleaning. A professional Solar installation that uses reputable brands should have your panels last up to 40 years and will usually come with a 25-year warranty.

4. Improve your Carbon Footprint

Everyone wants to do their bit for the environment. With fossil fuels polluting our atmosphere and worsening our climate every day, the time is now for change.

A solar installation can help to bring about a new and healthy attitude towards generating energy. Be part of the movement and help to improve our planet with a solar installation today!

5. Reduce your energy consumption

During warmer and cooler months, cooling and heating your home or business consumes a significant amount of energy which adds up on your electricity bill. Using a solar system can allow you to keep your air conditioning system running on eco mode throughout the day to keep your home or business at a more comfortable temperature. Therefore, when you come home at night, your home should be at the perfect temperature. Businesses can also benefit from reduced electricity costs and consumption during the day when their facility is in use.

Additionally, the electricity cost and consumption associated with water heating can be quite significant. Switch to Solar and be smarter with your energy consumption.

6. Combat rising electricity costs

Electricity costs have always continued to rise. Don’t let the energy companies ruin your lifestyle or livelihood. Solar systems allow you to stay one step ahead of rising electricity costs for your home or business.

7. Power is generated even when it rains

Contrary to popular belief, solar panels do generate electricity during the rain and on cloudy days. That’s because they convert light (not heat) into energy. The more light there is, the more power will be generated. In fact, rain can be good for cleaning your panels to reduce surface dust to allow more light in on sunnier days.

8. Self-Sustainability

When we think about the different ways of generating energy, it seems mad to disregard the limitless power of the sun. When you choose to install solar panels in your home or business, you are taking advantage of this power.

Even on overcast days and when it’s cold, your solar system will generate energy for you. This provides you with a self-sustaining model regarding energy production. Imagine knowing that you are producing the electricity to boil that kettle and not your energy provider!

9. Cost Effective

One of the greatest benefits of solar installation is how much you can save on your monthly bills. You may be able to power your entire home with your solar panels if you generate more energy than you need. If this is the case, you may also be able to sell the surplus power back to your supplier, resulting in even more savings.

In addition, the solar rebate initiative is still running! This means you can save money at the point of sale on your final solar installation cost. The scheme is due to slowly run down until finally finishing in 2031.

What is solar power and how does it affect me?

Why you may save money with a professional solar installation

In short, green energy is the future. Traditional methods of producing electricity are becoming unsustainable and harming the environment. This is why many people are making the switch to solar power. Solar installations consist of solar panels being placed, typically, onto the roof of your house. When this solar system is exposed to sunlight, it converts the exposure to the rays into energy.

Using this system gives you the potential to power your entire house using sunlight. This could save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars over time. Additionally, your home will leave a significantly lower carbon footprint. Leaving you in the knowledge that you are doing your best for the environment.

How does my home use solar power?

Discover how your home may greatly benefit from a Solar Installation

There are 2 different outcomes once your solar installation is completed. This is based on how much power your solar system can generate and how much your home needs to be sustained. Let’s take a look at these two outcomes.

Top-up of Power Needed

In the other scenario, your home needs more power than your solar panels are generating. So, let’s say that after your solar installation, your solar power yield is 2.1kW; however, your house needs 2.5kW to run efficiently.

In this case, you are 0.4kW short. Your retailer will then supply your home with the 0.4kW that it needs and only charge you for this portion. Whether you can sell your excess power to your retailer or need to purchase a small top-up, you will be saving on your monthly bills.

 

Excess Solar Power Generated

In this example, your solar panels are creating more power than is needed to run your home. If we say that your solar system creates 3.9kW of power and your house needs 1.9kW then there will be a surplus of 2kW.

Where does the extra energy go? This is when we introduce the feed-in tariff. Your retailer may pay for the energy that you produce through your solar panels as it is redirected back to the grid (these rates can vary). This way, no power is wasted and your bills are cut. Win-win.

Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some of the frequently asked questions that our customers ask about Solar Installations

What is the Solar Rebate and how does it affect my Solar Installation?

Since 2011, Australians have been able to take advantage of the government incentive brought about by the Renewable Energy Scheme. This initiative gives households and small businesses the chance to purchase solar installations with a point of purchase discount!

Over time, the discount has lowered but it is still at a very generous rate. It may save you a few thousand dollars depending on certain factors e.g. location and size of the purchase. This incentive drops a little every year and will end in 2031, so to get the most out of your discount, don’t delay! Contact CQ Solar & Electrical today to arrange a quote!

Can I install solar myself?

It is illegal to install solar panels on your home or business unless you are a qualified electrician. This is generally because of the danger of working at heights, the danger of working with electricity and how your system will integrate with your existing electrical system.

At CQ Solar and Electrical, we can provide a high-quality solar installation at a reasonable price. Let our team of fully qualified and reliable solar installation professionals do the hard work for you. This way, you can relax knowing that the work has been carried out professionally and safely.

When it comes to solar installation, there are a variety of factors to consider. For instance:

  • How much power do you want to generate and what proportion of your electricity will this cover?
  • Whether or not you’ll need batteries to store electricity
  • How many panels are you looking to purchase?
  • Are you looking for premium panels?
