4 Excuses why Australians do not install solar and why they should

Growth of solar in Australia continues to increase at a faster rate. There are about 3 million solar systems installed across Australia and it is increasing. Australia generates about 7% of its electricity through solar power systems. However, there are many million roofs without solar, which are 100% reliant on the expensive grid electricity. Let’s look at the common excuses why Australians do not install solar and the solution to it.

1. I don’t have enough money to go solar right now!

Ask yourself how many times have you thought solar is expensive, I can’t afford to go solar right now and ended up spending on high electricity bills? If you can afford to pay for electricity bills, you can surely afford to install a solar power system. At Arise Solar the system cost starts with as low as $7 per day with $0 upfront cost. Additionally, the Australian government offers a generous amount of rebates to install solar at your property. Learn more about how you can save money on solar and other finance options available through the Arise Solar deal. If you are waiting on rebates to increase or install solar some time later. It is surely going to cost more than now. Rebates are only going to reduce year on year and the prices you pay for electricity are only going to rise, ultimately leading to loss. 

2. I am waiting for battery costs to reduce.

Installing solar batteries have their own pros and cons. Over the past few years it was assumed that the costs for the batteries are going to drop. That hasn’t happened yet. A good quality solar battery will usually pay for itself over the warranty period of the battery. However, solar batteries need new technology to sustain longer and require less maintenance. The fact of the matter here is, mostly all the solar power systems available currently are battery ready, which means you can install panels now and connect a battery later. Arise Solar is currently offering a latest technology solar power system that can be connected to a battery later. Contact us to learn more about the current solar deal.

3. My roof doesn’t face north. Solar is not worth it.

Earlier the panels were only installed in the North direction as the panels were really costly and to receive the maximum benefits it had to be installed to the north. However, with years the studies have evolved and new facts have emerged. Considering reading our blog what directions should I put my solar panels? For better understanding of products and roof direction. However, studies have proved North West and north east also prove to be equally beneficial for solar installation. It is advised to put the solar panels on 2 sides of the roof to receive the maximum benefits of production throughout the day. Speak to one of the Arise solar consultants to discuss your roof concerns and install solar now. 

4. I don’t trust the solar companies

With so much going on in the solar industry and so many new companies emerging every year, it is definitely difficult to find the one company you can trust. Solar is for the long term and choosing the right company to partner with you over this journey needs to be done carefully. Before deciding on which company to go ahead with, make sure to look at their online presence and their online reviews as that speaks a lot about them.

We work with Australia’s most trusted solar panel brands, with systems engineered for our unique and changing climate.
