We have been reading and listening about how good the solar investment is for a long time now. The financial and environmental benefits associated with solar are enough to make a smart solar decision. However, there are a few reasons that stop us from switching to solar every time we start looking for quotes. Let us discuss 4 major reasons that stop Australians from switching to sun this summer and understand if they are the real facts or just the myths.
1. Space Constraint and Aesthetics
Most of us wonder if we have enough roof space to install solar modules and without asking the experts or conducting some research about the roof, we form a belief that “I do not have enough space on my roof to install solar panels”. That may not be true. Almost every property in Australia has enough space to get solar modules on them. The Solar Power System might not require as much as we think it does. Better is to put in an inquiry and get the assessment done by a Solar Expert who can do it using a specialized online software and assess your roof aerially.
The second biggest concern that occupies our mind is “What if my roof’s aesthetics are changed while installation? What if the roof is damaged during the installation?” Well, there are various types of solar modules available in the market, that just add to the beauty of your roof. Moreover, an experienced solar company will always make sure that the damage to your roof if any occurs during the solar installation is fixed.
Homes with solar modules on roofs sell at a higher price than those without. We believe this reason alone is enough to make a solar investment this summer even without taking into account the saving perspective yet.
2. Solar is Expensive/Out of My Budget
Installing a solar power system may seem like an expense at first. A typical 6.6kW solar PV system in Brisbane costs $4000-$5500, the prices are subject to change considering the location and specifications of the property. Rooftop solar system installation is a long-term investment, thus appropriate research and monitoring should be exercised before making the decision. As we said it is a long term investment, the system usually pays back within 3-5 years’ of time, providing free electricity for the lifespan of solar. On an average Brisbane homeowners with a 6.6kW solar PV system can save approximately $900-$1500 annually on their energy costs. So, is it really an expense? Also if you avail a finance option on a 6.6kW system it would cost you an equivalent to a couple of cups of coffee i.e. around $5/day with fortnightly payment plans because of which it would not really affect much to your lifestyle.

4. The Solar Batteries confusion
Solar Batteries are getting increasingly popular these days. If we were to talk about solar batteries 5 years ago from now, it would have been complicated to get them installed because of the cost and rebates associated with it. The government is offering solar battery rebates of up to $3500 to the eligible homeowners. Moreover, the cost of batteries have reduced making them more financially viable. On the top of that, you also get a chance to get a battery installed availing finance option, making it even smoother for you. Now is the best time to get a solar PV system + solar battery at your property, as the power prices are rising constantly and the rebates are set to reduce. Storing the excess power your solar system generates makes perfect sense. Arise Solar is offering super-efficient solar battery + solar PV system deals at the most competitive prices.
