Solar

Using solar power is one of the few things in life that offers significant savings and an assured return on investment. There are many other operational and environmental benefits to solar power too. We offer free solar assessments and customised proposals for residential homes or commercial properties.

What are the general benefits of a solar power system?

Solar power saves you money
All the electricity generated by your solar power system equates to kilowatts of electricity that you won’t have to buy from your electricity supplier. You will start to save immediately after installing a solar power system, however, the real and significant benefit* will be seen long term, as shown here:


*Based on an investment of approx. $6K. Exact figures will vary from customer to customer.

Solar power benefits the environment
We can reduce the need to generate electricity from fossil fuels like coal and gas by using electricity generated from solar panels instead. This reduces our emission of carbon dioxide (CO2) and is better for the environment.

Solar power is reliable
Solar power systems are a reliable source of energy just as the sun is reliable, in that it rises and sets every day, and shines for many hours of the day, especially in South Australia. With the advancement and increasing affordability of lithium-ion batteries, there are multiple options now to store solar power during the day and use it at night.

How can solar power benefit my business?

Grants and incentives
South Australia is one of the most progressive states in the country when it comes to solar power and battery storage. You may be eligible for a grant or incentive if you switch to solar in South Australia. In fact, the City of Adelaide has been offering some of the most generous incentives for solar power in Australia since 2015, and one of the only incentives for solar battery storage in the country. Contact Adelaide City Council’s Carbon Neutral Adelaide Team with any questions about your eligibility for rebates and whether they can offer a pre-installation commitment (incentives@cityofadelaide.com.au; 8203 7203) or go to Sustainability Incentives Scheme Frequently Asked Questions for more information.
