6 Top Reasons to Install Solar

There is no better time than now to install solar in Perth. The following six reasons will help explain why this is the case.

As a resident of Perth you should be taking advantage and installing an efficient solar energy system. This could help cut your fuel costs considerably, leaving more money in your pocket at the end of each month. 

Below, we’ll detail the top six reasons to install solar panels in Perth and why we believe  that Solar Energy Masters are best positioned to assist you.

1. Solar Rebate

In June 2010, Australia put the Renewable Energy Target scheme into action. This law effectively provides home and business owners with a large rebate up front when they install solar panels of up to 100kW (that’s more than 250 solar panels). The amount of discount does vary depending on:

  • Location solar panels are installed
  • How many solar panels are installed
  • What year they are installed
You won’t have to file any paperwork to claim the discount. When we give you a quote for your Solar, we’ll calculate the amount of discount and deduct it from the total price.

The average discount for a solar system in Perth is about 30 to 50 percent of the system’s up-front cost.

For example in Perth in 2019 the discount is roughly $3,000 when installing a 5kW solar system.

A Perth business can get up to $60,000 where they are installing 100kW as many smart businesses are finding.

Perth residents should consider solar panels because there’s a greater chance of them receiving a more substantial discount on their system.

Although the cost of a system has reduced throughout Australia over the past six years, Perth prices are still amongst the best.

With 3200 hours per year, Perth enjoys more annual sunshine than any other city in Australia, making it the ideal location for solar power.

2. Ample Sunshine

As you can see from the chart above, Perth has the highest number of sunshine hours.

One of the primary reasons why solar panels make sense for Perth home and business owners is because of how much sunshine there is in the region. Statistics from PVWatts indicate that the area receives an average of 5.8 hours of “peak sunshine” each day per square meter, one of the highest annual averages in Australia.

Perth receives so much sunlight that home and business owners can afford to have larger systems. The larger the system, the more energy it can produce. And the more power the system can provide, the less residents need to remain “on the grid” to use traditional electrical options.

The amount of electricity you get from your Solar in Perth is also impacted by your roof orientation, for example solar panels on a north facing roof with a pitch of 20 degrees will generate more power than solar panels on a flat surface or on a west or east facing roof, but in general you can expect;

Average kilowatt hours (kWh) a day from 5kW of Panels
Summer Winter Average
30kW 15kW 22.5kW

Purchasing an optimal solar energy system means that you may have extra energy that you don’t use. This extra energy may be sold to your electricity retailer or you could store it in batteries for use when the sun isn’t shining or when there is a black out.

3. Proven Technology

More than 2,000,000 homeowners in Australia utilise the power of solar panels, with many of those homes located in the Perth area.

Battery storage allows users to store solar reserves so that they can become entirely self-sufficient. Because Perth has an abundance of sunlight, solar panel owners can trust that they’ll always have enough energy on hand, allowing them to go off the grid entirely.

Additionally, Perth home and business owners also have the option to sell energy back to the grid. If you fill your battery reserves and meet your max system output, selling power back to the network could be an excellent way to help offset costs.

4. Reduce your Energy Bill

If you do not have a solar system, you must purchase the energy you use from the grid. Synergy runs the network in Perth. However, if you opt for solar panels, you can use the power directly. You can significantly reduce the amount of energy you must purchase from Synergy.

The cost of solar energy system will quickly pay for itself based on the money you’ll save on your electric bill.
The other way to save money on your bill is through Solar Feed-In Tariffs or the money you receive for selling excess solar energy back into the grid.

Typically, home owners receive almost 8 cents per kWh when selling excess solar energy in Perth. You’ll receive a credit on your Synergy bill when doing so.

Considering that the price for electricity on the grid at the time of writing this is 27c per kWh, it’s easy to see that the cost of using energy on the grid is more expensive than using solar power. With rising energy bills and improvements in battery efficiency, installing batteries is proving more and more popular.

If you ever increased electrical output in your home, you could sustain the increase without having to buy energy off the grid at an inflated premium.

5. Perth’s Sunshine allows You to Repay the System Quickly

Because of how much sunshine you’ll receive in Perth, you cannot only pay off your system quickly, but you could also save substantially as well. For instance:

If you purchase a 3kW solar system it can pay for itself within 2 to 3 years.

If you opt to install a larger 5kW system, it can still pay for itself within years with as little as 40 percent self-consumption. So even if you are only using 40% of the solar electricity your annual savings are approximately $1,250 per year. These figures are average estimates and will vary depending on your particular installation and with changing electricity prices.

The bottom line, however, is that living in Perth makes it easy to pay off your system quickly. The more you use the system, and the larger the order that you install, the quicker you can pay off its costs and begin earning money by selling energy back to the grid.

6. Solar Energy is Clean and Eco-Friendly

Perth is a beautiful part of the world. Installing a solar system can go a long way toward preserving its beauty.

Solar panels rely on nothing more than the power of the sun. There are no by-products that are harmful to the environment.

Installing solar energy allows you to reduce your carbon footprint and help create a cleaner environment.

Going green could help make your home more valuable.
