Making Your Home Green: 9 Benefits of Residential Solar Installation

According to Green Tech Media, Australia has over 2.4 million solar systems installed. Australia has rapidly taken to renewable energy and is adopting it at an accelerated rate of 10 times quicker than the global standard.

With solar becoming more affordable and accessible than ever, you might want to consider it for your own home.

If you’re wondering if solar is the right choice for your home, here are 9 benefits of residential solar installation.

1. Reduce or Do Away With Energy Bills

One of the biggest benefits of residential solar energy is the cost savings on your electric bill. In some cases, using solar energy may eliminate owing anything on electric bills.

Hours of direct sunlight your home receives, the system type, and your roof pitch will dictate how much solar your system generates.

As electric rates continue to rise, installing solar energy will give you more energy independence and control over your monthly costs.

2. A Greener Environment

Using solar energy rather than fossil fuel alternatives helps reduce carbon emissions. Fossil fuel and nuclear energy production can both have harmful impacts on the environment, including polluting the air and waterways.

By making the move to residential solar energy, you are offsetting the detrimental effects of nonrenewable energy sources.

3. Improve Your Home’s Resale Value

Having a solar system is an attractive selling feature for homes on the market. According to a report by the Berkeley Lab, having residential solar energy can increase a home’s resale value by up to $15,000.

You can reap the savings while in your home and continue to see the financial benefits of increased value when you move.

4. Available Government Incentives

If you install an eligible solar system, under the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES), you can receive a rebate towards the cost of your system.

Amounts of the incentive vary based on the size of the system, so speak with a solar professional to see how much you can save.

5. Lengthen the Life of Your Roof

Solar panels can extend the life of your roof, as it acts as a barrier against damaging elements and the effects of inclement weather.

Extending the life of your roof and reducing costly repairs can have a positive long-term financial impact.

6. Minimal Maintenance

One of the benefits of solar energy is that the system is low maintenance. It is recommended to occasionally clean panels to ensure debris is not obstructing the direct sunlight.

You’ll want to consult with a solar professional regarding available warranty options and recommended maintenance for your specific system.

7. Store Power and Earn Credits

In some cases, it is possible to earn feed-in tariffs from your electric company if you have not used all solar energy created by your system. This is often seen as credits on your electric bill.

Rates and terms will vary based on your electric company and solar usage.

8. Affordable Options

According to the Solar Energy Industries Association, the cost of a residential solar installation has decreased by 70% over the past 10 years.

With solar being more accessible and affordable for homeowners, you can reap the savings benefits.

9. Amazing Return on Investment

Homeowners with solar see an amazing return on their investment over the long-term and typically break even within 4-7 years.

This is dependent upon several factors, so it’s wise to consult with a solar professional to discuss your situation.

    5 star review  All green environmental solutions installed a large solar system and Tesla battery at my elderly neighbours house (who I was assisting) on the 20th of August, 2020. The installation team came early in the morning, and after consulting with us about what they were going to do, they got to work. The whole process took less than a day, and the men were very efficient and courteous. At the end of the day, the system was tested and up and running, and they left the worksite tidy. Would highly recommend the company if you are thinking of putting in a system. Cheers, Phillip and Dennis. 😊😸

  • 5 star review  All Green installed my system about 3 weeks ago. They were very professional, on time and the system has been working perfectly from day 1. I was recommended them by a friend and I also highly recommend using them. Great price and great outcome.

  • 5 star review  I don't normally write reviews but decided to do it for All Green as I had a great experience and smooth transaction with them. Joe on the sales end was really great with understanding the needs and providing analysis for couple of different scenarios. He didn't try to push me to sell the biggest system and provided the optimum one that'd suite my need. It took a while to get it installed, but Wayne and the crew was great on the day. They had all the equipment and didn't even have to come inside the house. They did all the work from outside which was great as I was working from home that day. The job was neat and I didn't have to a tidy up after they've left. Emma and Kylie in the office were great to deal with as well. The system is working like a charm and automatically shut down safely when there was planned maintenance in the electricity network. Thanks guys, couldn't have been a smoother transaction. I'll be recommending you to everyone who's considering solar

    5 star review  Fantastic service from the boys at All Green Environmental Solutions. Could not recommend them highly enough. Local boys who take pride in their work and go above and beyond to help the customer. I am so glad I am now a customer of theirs. Not only did they do a great job cleaning my solar panels, they sorted out the problems I was having with my inverters. Great job Joel and Roger!!

  • 5 star review  All Green Environmental Solutions recently installed a large Solar system in my commercial premises. Scott is certainly an expert in his field and gave me the right advice from the outset. Also, Scott and his team were punctual, innovative, keen and professional at all times. I will definitely be using them again. Kind regards, Michael Bryer.

    5 star review  From the very start, Joe was competitive, and engaging with the quote.Joe provided a lot of background links to help in the education process, and help determine the right system for our house based on our budget. Then when it came to the install, Bryce and his team were here promptly. They were very engaging, and extremely efficient - done in 4hrs. Enjoying monitoring production and consumption, and looking forward to low energy bills and doing our little part for the environment. Thanks to All Green Environmental Solutions.

    5 star review  I was referred to All Green Environmental Solutions by a friend and I am so glad I listened. The job entailed installing Enphase solar panel system and a Tesla Powerwall 2 at my house. This was done efficiently with the work being completed on the day of installation with no issues. They setup the system so that I can monitor it on my phone, answered all questions I had and were professional throughout. I highly recommend them

  • 5 star review  Excellent long established family company with extensive experience in all things Solar. I researched a number of companies and All Green were by far the best value with the highest quality components. Highly recommended!

    5 star review  I had an issue with my Enphase system which was installed by another local company who went bankrupt, effectively voiding my labour warranty for good. All Green Environmental Solutions weren't obliged to assist me, being very busy with their own clients, but they did !. Their response was prompt and professional throughout. If you are looking to install solar, I am sure you will be safe in the long term and well looked after with this company. Thanks again .

    5 star review  Fantastic friendly service, very professional installers. Pricing was really good and they explained everything in simple terms that I could understand. I would have no hesitation recommending them. Even though they were from the central coast they were happy to come to Sydney and were always on time. It’s awesome dealing with companies like this. Thanks all green
