Australia is blessed with an enormous amount of sunshine throughout the summer months that make solar power a virtual must-have for every household. There are many benefits to solar power and virtually no drawbacks except for one: getting it installed. This hurdle is something that many people struggle to get over for one reason or another. Whether it is apathy or forgetfulness, there is no better time to get your solar power installed then right now. Here are three reasons you need to get off the chair and schedule a solar power installation now before summer.
Installation Costs Will Go Up
Getting solar power panels installed in summer is virtually always more expensive than getting them done in winter for one reason or another. It takes longer to do everything in the heat of a summer day, which means the cost of labour goes up. It also often requires more people to install these panels because they want to get in and out of the sun as quickly as possible. Also, because there is a higher demand for solar power in the summer months the market price for materials can go up as well, driving the price up once more.
Many Discounts Currently Ongoing
There are many current discounts going on, from the government rebates on solar power systems to COVID-19 related discounts from small businesses that are trying to keep afloat. As winter slowly moves into summer you will see these discounts from stores begin to dry up as demand gets back to normal. If you want your solar power system installed promptly and at a good price, then you need to act fast and get it done while these opportunities still present themselves. You might be surprised at just how steep some of these discounts are when you add them all up.
Solar Power Is Useful All Year Round.
While summer is the time most people are thinking about solar power, the solar panels that are installed work year-round and are almost as effective in winter as they are in the warmer months. The only reason they aren't is because of the fewer hours of sunlight that you get during winter. Don't get caught up in the hype of summer, make a smart choice right now, and start saving money on your power bill during every month of the year. Your back pocket will thank you, as will the environment.
