If you’re on the fence about making more sustainable improvements to your home – allow us to present a few persuasive facts.
Going green and making our homes eco-friendly is a great thing for the environment. But living sustainably also offers a whole range of other advantages for Australian families.
1. Reduce your energy bills
Using renewable energy can help households cut costs. In fact, a family using a 6.6kW solar power set-up – purchased for somewhere between $4000 and $6000 – will typically save between $1200 to $1800 on their power bills each year.
If you do the math, over the lifetime of the solar system (roughly 25 years) a household will recoup the cost of the system in three to five years, and save between $30,000 and $45,000 on bills in total.
Meanwhile, a family without solar will pay this money to power companies, plus a lot more once rising power costs are factored in.
Making your home energy efficient and eco-friendly via renewables can also give you peace of mind that you’re helping the planet.
