Make 2019 the year you switch to solar
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.
