Make 2019 the year you switch to so­lar

Tweed Daily News - - NEWS WELCOME -

AUS­TRALIA’S house­hold elec­tric­ity bills have dou­bled in the last five years, so it’s no se­cret that more and more Aus­tralians are mak­ing the switch to so­lar in a bid to dras­ti­cally re­duce their elec­tric­ity bills.

The lat­est Re­new­able En­ergy In­dex fig­ures re­port more than 8,500 homes across Qld and NSW in­stalled so­lar in the month of Oc­to­ber de­liv­er­ing cu­mu­la­tive sav­ings of $100 mil­lion dol­lars in power bill re­duc­tion over the next ten years.

Isn’t it time you got on board?

Right now, in­vest­ing in so­lar de­liv­ers se­ri­ous and im­me­di­ate re­turns. SAE Group have yet an­other com­pelling of­fer that will make the switch easy for you. This high qual­ity 6.6kw so­lar bun­dle com­prised of the 5kw So­lax X1 in­verter, and 24 x 275watt Seraphim pan­els, for just $4,695.

We un­der­stand it might seem com­pli­cated to get a real un­der­stand­ing of what your re­turns might be on a so­lar sys­tem, so let’s take a look at just how good the ben­e­fits are so you can make an in­formed de­ci­sion.

Ac­cord­ing to the Clean En­ergy Coun­cil the av­er­age hours of sun­light a day across the year is 4.2 hours, so we will use this as the base to cal­cu­late the so­lar gen­er­a­tion. Based on 4.2 hours a day, a 6.6kw sys­tem will gen­er­ate 28kw of clean en­ergy ev­ery day.

Now let’s say you self-con­sume 50%, or 14kw your to­tal so­lar gen­er­a­tion each day. Based on to­day’s av­er­age elec­tric­ity charges of .28c/kw, by cut­ting your re­liance on the grid by 50%, you stand to make a sav­ing of $3.92 each day. That might not seem much but over the course of a year that’s $1,430 back in your pocket. Then there’s the other 50% of your so­lar pro­duc­tion that you can ex­port back to the grid. Based on to­day’s av­er­age so­lar feed in tar­iffs you’re look­ing at any­where from 8 cents to 15 cents, de­pend­ing on your elec­tric­ity re­tailer. Let’s base our cal­cu­la­tions some­where in the mid­dle… if you are ex­port­ing the re­main­ing 50% at 12 cents per kw, that’s an­other sav­ing of $1.68 cents per day, or a fur­ther $613 a year you’ll save in elec­tric­ity costs. That’s a whop­ping to­tal of $2,043 per year in elec­tric­ity sav­ings alone, which equates to a pay­back pe­riod of just over two years, leav­ing years ahead of you of pure sav­ings.

So­lar for your home or busi­ness is re­ally a no brainer, make good use of your rooftop and start sav­ing to­day.

SAE Group are gen­uinely pas­sion­ate about the ben­e­fits of a good qual­ity so­lar sys­tem de­signed to de­liver you real sav­ings. If you’re ready to take con­trol of your en­ergy fu­ture, and you’re look­ing for hon­est, trust­wor­thy ad­vice from your lo­cal en­ergy con­trac­tor, call SAE Group to­day on 1300 18 20 50.
