You’ve been paying Super contributions for a long time. When the time comes to enjoy those savings, you don’t want to spend it on ever increasing bills. Below we look at one of the most effective ways to make sure you get to use your Super for the things you actually care about.

Despite all the jokes we’ve all been making for years, actually stopping with working is exciting, but it can also be a little scary. Exciting because of all the time we’ll have, and maybe also a little scary for the same reason. 

One worry is shared almost universally however – and it isn’t an original one – money. What happens when there’s no longer a salary coming in? Have I contributed enough over the years? Will I be able to have the same lifestyle when I stop working? Or more importantly: will I be able to do the things I’ve been dreaming of doing when the alarm-clock no longer needs to be set?

Without knowing your financial situation it’s impossible for us to say if that’ll be the case. What we do know however is that there’s a way to make the most out of the money that is coming in that is applicable to almost everyone.

What will change when I stop working

We won’t be telling you anything you don’t already know. When you no longer have to spend 8 to 10 hours per day at work, you will be spending those hours somewhere else. Some of that time might be spent with your children, with your friends, in the pub and who knows, maybe even aboard a cruise ship to the Caribbean.

But when you’re not playing with your grandchildren or sipping cold beverages while looking out over the Atlantic Ocean, you will be spending a significant portion of that time at home.

That means your energy consumption patterns change, sometimes resulting in unexpectedly high energy bills. During our infamous Victorian summers for example you won’t be kept cool by the company aircon anymore, instead it’s now your own aircon that has to do the work. Instead of looking at a computer screen in the office, or being out on a job, you might be at home watching TV.

Not only will your energy consumption go up. The cost of energy goes up by on average 10% per year as well.

But unlike a salary, there are no bonuses or raises when it comes to your Super.

So, what’s this solution you’re talking about

We’re sure you saw our company name, so this won’t come as a surprise. The solution is solar power and the reason is simple. With solar power you have the ability to reduce your energy bill to zero.

Instead of paying $150 per month, or $1,800 per year for energy, you could be paying $0.

No more energy companies nibbling away at your retirement savings.

After 4 years, you will have saved over $7,000 on your energy bills. Enough to offset the entire purchase cost of a solar power system.

Better yet: after 10 years will have saved more than $17,000. Over $10,000 in net savings if you subtract the cost of a solar power system. Even more if you’re eligible for the Victorian Government Solar Power Rebate of $2,225.

That’s $10,000 more to spend on the things you love.

The Basics Solar Power in Australia

Why would I trust you

We don’t blame you if you don’t, but there’s a reason over 2 million homes in Australia already have solar power installed and the government is going all in on solar power through government rebates. Sales records for solar power are broken every day, simply because the numbers make sense.

We are often called the lucky country. We get more sun than almost anywhere in the world. Instead of continuing to do the same thing we’ve been doing for decades we have the opportunity to change the way Australia thinks about energy. Energy can be more than burning coal and having the bill for that come in every quarter.
