Solar panel systems function as investments with strong rates of return, and homeowners with solar systems installed can avoid electricity disruption and electricity price increases.
Solar energy is very efficient and can dramatically lower how much you spend on your monthly electricity account. It is estimated that an investment in solar will take you 2.5 to 7 years to break even. Investing in a large battery system will extend the break-even period as the battery systems can be high-priced.
When looking at your current consumption, have a look at your monthly electricity bills, and try to get a 12-month average, taking into account how much your bills are over the winter months (heating bills), also think about when you are more likely to have been using power, i.e. generally during the day you would be at work. Hence, there is less load, but loads at night, early morning and weekends will be more.
Armed with this information, you’ll have a far more enlightened conversation with your solar installer, and avoid any confusion and disappointment later. We will meet with you and determine all the factors in order to make an informed decision about balancing your budget and requirements.
As part of the initial process, we will go through your entire home and see exactly where all that power goes, where we can help you reduce your existing energy usage, and how best to build a system that meets your needs in the future. Given that solar systems have a 25 to 30-year lifespan, you need to put in a system that is scalable, reliable and will last.
