Is solar right for you

Here are some important things to consider when deciding if solar is the right choice for your household.

Natural power

Queensland, the sunshine state we call home, could not provide more perfect conditions for you to benefit from installing solar.

Not only will it help to reduce your bills, solar gives you access to government schemes and it is also better for the environment. As more and more people are looking for sustainable energy solutions, solar may even increase the value of your property, if you decide to sell.

Some things you need to think about

When doing your research, there's a lot you need to consider before signing on the dotted line:

  • Be sure the system you're looking at, does what you want it to do.  i.e. if you're looking to reduce your bill, will the system be large enough to cover most of your usage?
  • Have you received a number of quotes for the size of system you need to make sure you're getting the best value for the money you are investing?
  • Even though you may hear that having solar means ‘no electricity bill’ this isn't always the case
  • Just because your friend or neighbour may not receive a bill, doesn’t mean that you won’t – everyone uses power differently and no two houses have the same appliances or insulation. The only comparison can be done using your own electricity data.
