5 reasons to get solar
We all have different drivers for making the switch to solar. It might be your way of making a positive contribution to the environment, or it could be saving money on your electricity bills will help you reach a financial goal. Maybe it’s both? Here are our top five reasons for making the switch..
1. Achieve a $0 electricity bill
Not all solar companies are made equal, we know that, and we also know some don’t have a formula for how they will achieve that elusive $0 bill. However one of the Instyle differences is that we actually do the math, and we custom design a solution to suit your household or business needs. We use your historical consumption data, which we find on your electricity bills, and then we discuss consumption habits, feed-in tariff potential and a system size that will cover all of those things. Then we work out a personalised solution to eliminate the electricity bill – for REAL.
2. Eliminate bill fluctuation
At least a few times a year we get excessively cold or scorching hot weather in most parts of Australia. A common concern for most homeowners is using the air conditioner or the larger home appliances ‘too often’ will spike the electricity bill and result in a financial dilemma. The way we use the power within our homes and businesses is then determined by financial impacts, as opposed to our comfort levels or personal needs. It doesn’t need to be this way! Install solar, and you will no longer need to be concerned about receiving unexpectedly high electricity bills if you have some or all of your electrical consumption offset with a personalised solar system.
3. It’s cheaper than you realise
It’s cheaper to use finance than pay an electrical bill It’s easy to get stuck on whether it’s a smart choice to take out a financial commitment for necessities like home improvements and payments for a rooftop solar system. In our experience, we’ve found it’s often more beneficial to consider one of our Green Energy Loan options, designed specifically for solar power and other renewable energy solutions, as opposed to handing over hard-earned savings. We’re not a financial institution, and we cannot provide financial advice, but we are guided by our financial partners and their experience. If you’re thinking about solar, but the cost is a hurdle, there is a solution. Our partners can calculate a repayment plan that can often be less than what you would typically pay for your quarterly electricity bill, so you’re ‘in the green’ sooner and have something to show for your money.
4. Help the planet
It’s no secret the global environmental impact of continually depleting our world of its natural resources is drastically changing its structure, the weather patterns and our way of life. Solar power is 100% renewable and doesn’t use any water, gas, oil or coal to produce your home or business’s power supply. How’s that for helping the planet recover?
5. It’s the future
2020 will be remembered as a year like no other for many reasons – bushfires, floods and a pandemic, plus its fair share of damaging storms and seasons that can’t make up their minds. One thing we have all learnt this year is that our planet is changing. Reducing our day-to-day environmental impact in any way we can is top of mind, and one of the easiest ways to do this is by switching to solar power. As a renewable energy option, solar power is about to break all historical records with an estimated 6.6 gigawatts to be installed in Australia by 1 January 2021. This record is a reflection of many Australians trying to reduce their carbon footprint by making the switch to solar.
