With two teams battling out whether to renovate or rebuild a home, homeowners need to decide who to choose. How? With a little bit of expert advice and input on the overall sustainability, design and price that either team renovate, or re-build, proposes. Through Energy Matters supporting either choice, we hope to influence the families around Australia to be more energy conscious in the way they design, create, or renovate a property.

Energy Matters are proud to announce their partnership with Payright, who are specialists when it comes to buy now pay later for residential solar and battery systems.

Payright gives your customers the option to reduce their household power bills by spreading the cost of a new solar or battery system into bite-size instalments.

ACT Emissions vs Other States

Australia’s total greenhouse gas emissions was 535 million tonnes CO2-e in 2017. ACT ties with Tasmania as being Australia’s lowest polluting territory/state.

The ACT is unique in that it is the only Australian state or territory to have no grid-scale electricity generators located within its borders. The electricity imported from the NSW grid is 100% sourced from solar and wind farms (2019-2020 reporting period). Due to this, ACT reports on emissions differently. ACT offset the emissions of household electricity usage with the purchase of Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs). This resulted in emissions intensity of electricity to the value of zero!

ACT Total Net Emissions

The ACT Greenhouse Gas Inventory for 2019-20 report found that the estimate of total greenhouse gas emissions for the ACT was 1,684 kilotonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (kt CO2-e).

Rather amazingly, the electricity emissions totalled 0! This was wholly due to renewable energy being the source of all electricity consumed in the ACT, and any emissions from that use offset with RECs.

ACT Homes with Solar

As of the 2016 Australian Census, there were 163,286 private dwellings. Of those private dwellings, 34,576 homes have a solar PV system installed – that’s 1 in 5 ACT homes!

Only 1,479 of those homes have a solar battery installed. Are you one of the many Canberrans that have solar? Are you one of the few that have solar battery storage? If you answered no to either
of those questions, why not speak to a local installer today?
