With all the recent environmental movements popping up, there is a cry for power plants to switch to solar power
and other green alternatives. PV systems derive clean, pure energy from the sun. Installing solar panels
on your home helps combat greenhouse gas emissions and reduces our collective dependence on fossil fuel. That is why hundreds of homeowners are now looking into installing their own pv systems. The big question, however, is if it’s worth it.
Recently, a survey was conducted across Australia. The results show that 9 out of 10 Australians did consider or were considering switching to green alternatives. While there were a lot of factors affecting their decision, the biggest motivation was financial. Cutting electricity bills, government-mandated rebates and incentives, and profit through feed-in tariffs were all extremely attractive benefits.
But money-related benefits aside, what else is there if you were to go solar?
