Why Everyone Is Going Solar

Sarah Russo3 years ago

So, you know solar power uses the sun, but do you really know how it works and why it’s such a hot topic? We’ve made it easy to understand why solar power is fast becoming Australia’s favourite green energy solution. Plus, we have found some great solar system installers to help you invest in saving money and the environment.

How Does Solar Power Work?

Did you know? Cloncurry in Australia is preparing to produce enough solar panels to power the whole town, 24/7!

Everyone knows solar panels harness the sun’s energy, but how does it work? Using photovoltaic cells, solar panels convert energy from the sun into direct current (DC) electricity. An inverter then changes direct current electricity into alternating current (AC) electricity, which is used to power your home.

What Can Solar Power Be Used For?

Solar panels can be used for more than powering your home and hot water! As well as powering your pool equipment, outdoor lighting and caravan, there are some nifty gadgets and accessories now available and powered by the sun.

Can Solar Power Run Out?

Can Solar Power Save Me Money?

Once you invest in solar panels, they will significantly reduce your power bill. The more solar power you use, the less electricity you need from the grid, leading to lower energy bills. And who doesn’t love saving money! 

What Are Some Other Benefits?
