Are you looking for a sustainable and cost-effective way to power your home or business? Look no further than solar panels. There are numerous benefits to getting solar panels installed in Bunbury. From reducing your carbon footprint to increasing the value of your property. In this blog, we explore the many advantages of going solar in Bunbury.
Save Money on Electricity
By harnessing the power of the sun, you can significantly reduce your monthly energy bills. The more sunlight your solar panels receive, the more electricity they produce. Bunbury receives an average of 8 hours of sunshine each day and 120.6 clear days per year. This means a 5kW solar system will produce an average of 40kWh of energy per day.
Solar energy is a renewable resource, meaning you can generate your power for free once the initial installation costs are covered. The savings over time can be substantial, especially as energy prices continue to rise. Installing a solar battery for your solar panel system can reduce your energy bills even further.
Solar Rebates and Incentives
The Australian government offer various incentives for installing solar panels. The federal government provides a solar rebate to homeowners and eligible businesses under the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES).
The Western Australian government offers feed-in tariffs through the Distributed Energy Buyback Scheme (DEBS). This involves your energy provider paying for the excess electricity generated and exported to the grid by your solar PV system. Synergy is the electricity provider for Bunbury and most of the Southwest region of WA.
Our solar incentives page has more information on these programs and the eligibility conditions.
Better for the Environment
Installing solar panels in Bunbury not only powers your home but also benefits the environment. Solar energy is clean and renewable, producing zero greenhouse gas emissions during operation. By choosing solar power, you contribute to reducing carbon emissions and decreasing the reliance on fossil fuels.
Modern solar panels can last for up to 25-30 years and require minimal maintenance. However, solar panels can get damaged by falling debris and storms. The team at South West Solar Force have the skills and experience needed to repair solar panels.
