There are a number of great reasons to consider incorporating solar power into your build and here are a few good reasons to consider solar energy...


  • Solar power enables you to reduce electricity costs dramatically.  Costs will vary depending on your household usage and the size of the system you choose - but the sun is a totally free and accessible source of ongoing energy and you could potentially enjoy huge savings.
  • Including the cost of a solar PV system in your build allows you to incorporate the set up costs into your total build cost and amortise this across the life of your mortgage.
  • Solar systems can boost your property value.  Many experts agree that solar PV systems add resale value to future prospective buyers.
  • You may be eligible for a government subsidy. According to the Solar Victoria website, The Victorian Government is providing a 50 per cent rebate, up to the value of half of an average 4kW solar panel system for eligible households.  See for more information and eligibility criteria.
  • Feed-in tariffs allow you to sell surplus energy back to the grid so as well as reducing your energy costs, you may also be able to be reimbursed for collected energy that you don't use.
  • As well as saving on energy costs at today's prices, a well designed solar PV system can also help protect you against the potential of increasing energy costs and helps make your home more self sustainable and less reliant on energy retailers. 
  • And above all else - Solar power is a sustainable and renewable resource that reduces your carbon footprint and benefits the environment.
