The rise of your electricity bill

Electricity isn’t getting cheaper. When your electricity bill comes around, it’s hard not to wonder why it costs so much. Hidden tariffs, serge pricing and cost of production each contribute to that big expense you see every month. If only you could save that money for something else. Thankfully, with solar energy, you can.

What can I do about my rising electricity bill?

Solar energy is a renewable source of electricity. It’s harvested from sunlight, which makes it virtually free to consume. As a clean and sustainable source of energy, it can help you get on your way to a $0 energy bill. If you are planning to live in your house long-term, switching to solar energy could be the best decision you ever make. Depending on the size of the system and location of the house, our customers can see a payback period as little as 3 years.

Think about how long you plan to live in your house, 10, 20, 30, 40 years? Now compare that to the payback period and you’ll realise, if you install solar, you’d be setting yourself up for years to come. Imagine being able to live without dependence on the grid and sourcing your own electricity to save money!

The power of solar batteries

Want to kick your game up? Install a solar battery to get the most out of your solar system. The majority of South Australians aren’t home during the day and use a lot of electricity at night. If you only have solar PV panels installed, you’ll likely need to buy electricity back from the grid to support your household usage at night.

A solar battery will use the excess solar energy produced by your system to charge itself. That means you’ll have stored solar energy for use at night when you need it the most. By installing a solar battery, you will greatly reduce your dependence on the gird and maximise your savings.

South Australian Home Battery Scheme

The South Australian Home Battery Scheme means eligible South Australians can receive up to $6000 off the price of a solar battery. With these governmental incentives, the best time to install a solar battery is now. If you would like to talk to someone about how you can take advantage, submit an enquiry and a SouthAus Solar specialist will be in touch. Alternatively, you can call us today on 1300 70 71 72.
