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  Fantastic team to deal with. Within an hour of the install (which only took half a day) we were making more energy then we were using, and that was on a cloudy day! Highly recommend.

    5 star review  Excellent experience with All Green getting our solar panels fitted. Joel and the boys arrived on time and had the job finished in about 4 hours. The solar panels have been producing heaps of power since installation and we have not used any electricity in that time.

  • 5 star review  A highly professional experience from start to finish. The sales team provided all the information we needed in an easy to understand format with very competitive pricing. Once we decided to go ahead with the purchase things moved along quickly and within a short time the installation crew arrived. The crew were very helpful and friendly, explaining all the steps and downtime was kept to a very minimum amount of time. No more than 15 minutes or so. The monitoring software was installed and explained in detail and the empty boxes, etc was cleaned away. A reassuring aspect of the monitoring software is that in the event of a problem All Green will contact me to let me know what will be done and when, not the other way around as is usually the case. Top marks on all aspects of the deal from start to finish. Well done. I would recommend All Green in an instant.

  • 5 star review  Very pleased with the solution that All Green Environmental came up with. It wasn't the easiest installation with a very steep roof but the installation team did very well and the system was up and running the same day. Very efficient, no mess and I now have 'free' power. Would definitely recommend them.

  • 5 star review  We engaged All Green to install solar panels and a Tesla Powerwall 2 at our house. They did a timely, efficient job, and we are very pleased. They went through the system with me, including demonstration of "grid down" performance. They provided clear answers to my questions. They also left the place clean and tidy. An excellent job all round.

    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  Great advice and service and I don't regret selecting them. They are not a pushy solar marketing outfit. I have recommended them to friends who are looking for solar. They were very patient and helpful while I watched shading issues during different times of the day in the weeks before I made a decision. My observations just confirmed what they had proposed. I was very happy with the installation process. What they said I could expect to be generated on my site and position is on target with what is actually happening.

    5 star review  May I thank the installer Dave who came around today to troubleshoot and fix my network connectivity with the Enphase envoy. He went to great trouble to hook it up via ethernet so it’s much more reliable and I’m thrilled about that. This is the sort of excellent post-install service you want but don't always get. Recommend.

  • 5 star review  All Green Environmental Solutions this week installed a system for us in Northbridge NSW - 8Kw system with 26 Jinko panels and Enphase microinverters. It was the first company I contacted and after meeting with Gary Adair on site having already read reviews of the company, I decided not to bother with competitive quotes. And I wasn't disappointed. The 3 man team led by Bryce turned up as promised at 9am last Tuesday and by 4pm that day we were up and running. Company staff have been both efficient and courteous. Whilst the price I paid is definitely not the cheapest I could have obtained, the professionalism of the company and the confidence that engenders more than makes up for it. I would wholeheartedly recommend All Green Environmental Solutions to anyone considering a solar system.

    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  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

    5 star review  Competitive pricing. Installation crew on time, polite, efficient and answered all my questions. Really appreciated the call a half hour before arrival letting me know they were on their way. Recommended Enphase micro-inverter system is great. Monitoring software is fantastic. Could not have asked for a better experience.

    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. 😊😸
