There’s never been a better time to install solar to your home. We’re all feeling the squeeze when it comes to those quarterly energy bills that land on the doormats, and energy rates don’t look to be coming down any time soon.

The cost of solar on the other hand, has been happily coming down over the past decade, and it’s more accessible than ever to homeowners.

So, here are just 3 of the many reasons to install solar for your home…

  1. The savings

When it comes to keeping those energy costs down, solar is a sensible move. Solar panels enable you to generate your own green energy, so you won’t have to buy as much from the Grid. Over time, you’ll learn to plan your electricity usage so that you maximise your solar energy.

For example, setting the laundry and the dishwasher to do their thing during the day while you’re at work means they’ll be powered by your solar energy. There’s also the option to add battery storage, so you can store your unused solar power and use it when it suits you – even after dark.

  1. You’ll be doing your bit for the planet

There’s something really satisfying about knowing you’ve made your little corner of the planet greener. Generating your own green energy means you’ll be doing your bit to combat climate change, and if you have children it’s a great way to demonstrate that you’re taking control.

There are some fantastic apps available to help you monitor your solar generation and usage, and they help younger members of the family to grasp the idea of electricity and how much you’re using.

Once you get into the habit of checking where your energy’s coming from and how much you’re using around the home, you’ll start to naturally switch those lights off when you leave a room!

  1. Panels never looked better
