About solar power
Solar power is one of the most reliable and safest solutions to Australia’s energy problems
One of the most reliable and safest solutions is right above us. Our planet receives 10,000 times more power from the sun than our population uses. That’s a lot of power to harness, and a lot of jobs, land and communities we could improve by making a simple switch to a clean source of energy.
Most Australians are familiar with the idea of solar power, after all we live in one of the sunniest countries in the world. But if you’ve ever looked into buying solar power, you will know that being familiar with the “idea” isn’t enough to guarantee you’ll end up with the right investment. A three second Google search will show up an overwhelming list of suppliers, products and warranties – all claiming the best for the least.
The best part about going solar in Australia: Solar is a lot cheaper than it used to be, and there are even pay-as-you-save options so you use your own electricity bill to pay for your system without any out of pocket cost.
Thanks to government incentives and a broader awareness of the advantages of solar power, more and more Australians are making the change. Over 2 million homes already have solar power installed, that’s 20.3% of all homes in Australia and that number is only going up as an average of 6 panels per minute are installed on homes all over Australia.
