Are solar panels worth the investment? How much money can you save?
Some Australians aren’t yet making the decision to install solar panels because they think it will be too expensive and complicated. However, this isn’t the case at all! With solar prices at an all-time low, solar panels are proving to be one of the smartest and safest investments you can make in 2021. The upfront cost will be recouped within just a few years while saving thousands of dollars in electricity bills every year moving forward. In fact, a recent report by the ACCC revealed that solar owners save an incredible 31% on their energy bills compared to grid-connected households!

Enjoy power savings day and night by adding a battery. Not only will solar panels and a battery add value to your home, energy bills can be reduced by using battery power at peak times when electricity from the grid is more expensive.
Touted as the future of electricity, batteries allow solar power generated during the day to be stored for use at night time or on cloudy days when solar panels cannot generate electricity. In fact, adding a battery to a residential solar system can double the amount of self-generated electricity consumption. The battery may also:
- provide backup power during a grid outage (some systems only i.e. Tesla Powerwall 2)
- Reduce peak demand on the energy network
- Reduce greenhouse gas emissions
Did you know that over 50% of Australians intend to purchase an EV in the next 5 years ? Installing a home battery gives you the flexibility to either sell your stored electricity back to the grid or charge your EV overnight (whichever option works better for you depending on feed-in-tariff, lifestyle, etc.).
