WHY GO SOLAR ?

"GO SOLAR AND SAVE !!!" has become a cliche, but its a cliche for a very good reason.  Installing a Solar Power System can reduce the average cost of each Kilowatt Hour (kWh) of electricity you use to as little as 5c over the working life of the system.  How much are you paying for each kWh - check your bill - is it over 30c ?  Paying 5c would be a massive saving.  And while you are saving money, you can have the added satisfaction of knowing you are doing your bit to like more sustainably and save the planet.

ARE THERE GOVERNMENT FINANCIAL INCENTIVES ?   YES !

1)  STCs ("Small-scale Technology Certificates") =>  These provide an UPFRONT DISCOUNT

We can give you an Upfront Discount in exhange for STCs that are a tradeable certificate that represent the renewable energy generated by your system.

STCs are available for Solar Power Systems up to 100kW for Homes, Schools, Community Groups and Businesses.

2) Feed-in Tariff - Payoff your system over its working life by selling power back to the electricity grid

Any excess electricity that your system generates but you do no use is exported to the Electricity Grid.  Under Victorian Government legislation, retailers are required to offer you credits for this electrcity that use can use to pay your bills. See the Victorian Department of Primary Industries (DPI) Website for the latest up-to-date rules regarding eligibility for Feed-in Tariffs.  

We can do the math for you to work about how much of the electricity you produce will be used on site and how much exported back to the grid ... and thereby estimate the savings for you ...


DOES IT STILL MAKE SENSE TO GO SOLAR AT HOME ?

Many people have heard that Government Incentives for installing Solar Power have been cut back ... and assume mistakenly that is it no longer worth going solar.   **BUT** at the same time that incentives have been reduced, the upfront price of Solar Power Systems also been reduced.  Going solar still makes sense.  However, with the Feed-in Tariff reduced to 11c per kWh (less than you pay to import electricity) it is now very important to correctly size a system to meet your need for electricity.  This is what a local business like BREAZE Energy Solutions exists to do.  We will work with you to design a system that is right for your usage pattern to maximize your return of investment ... the more money you save going solar, the more spare cash you will have to do all the other things you can do to retrofit your house to be more energy efficient (and more comfortable) like draft-proofing and double-glazing.

WHAT ABOUT SOLAR AT WORK ?

The economics of solar power actually work even better at business than at home.  And when you think about it, that is not surprising because we are using power at work during daylight hours when a Solar Power System is producing electricity.  Ballarat businesses are waking up to this and realising that they can get control of their energy costs by installing solar power.  Imagine the relief of knowing you have locked in the price you pay for electricity for 25 years.  One less thing to worry about !!! Read about two local businesses who chose to reduce their energy costs by installing a Solar Power system with BREAZE Energy Solutions!  Give our Commercial Return on Investment Assessor Simon Reid a call on 0434769722 to discuss how your business can get its energy costs under control.
