Perth solar power: making the most of our beautiful sunshine

There are so many benefits to installing solar panels in Perth that extend beyond clean, cheap power. For example, in Perth a 4kW system can provide a return on investment far more than what you would receive in a term deposit or many other investments for that matter! Add to that the fact that solar panels generally add value to your home and the case for making the switch is even more compelling.

Buy solar now to buffer against electricity price rises or install a large enough system and perhaps blow away your bills altogether.

Perth solar batteries – enjoy savings day and night
By adding a battery to your solar panels you can decrease your reliance on traditional energy sources. Not only does this allow for some serious savings in terms of power bills but it also means that when there’s no sun or if the sun isn’t shining brightly enough then you’ll still have access to clean, renewable energy. In fact, adding a battery to a residential solar system can double the amount of self-generated electricity consumption.

The Electric Vehicle (EV) revolution is gaining strength in Australia. Are you EV ready?

The number of Australians who intend to purchase an electric vehicle (EV) is increasing at record rates. This means that more people will need access to charging stations, and solar panel installations with batteries are a great option for this! Charging your car with solar power during the night boosts the business case for both your solar installation and your electric vehicle. A battery also 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.).
