Not only do you save money every month!!!
It is well known that by switching your home lighting to LED substitute bulbs you can cut your lighting energy usage down by about 90%. By installing a solar water heater you can cut your water heating energy costs by 35%. You can then also instal a PV system and according to the energy usage of your home and your budget; this system can either provide your home with clean energy whenever it can (possibly only during the times of the day when energy usage is low like when the kids are at school and you are slaving away at work) or 24/7 if your system is big enough. Both these systems would obviously cut your total electricity bill by quite a substantial amount! I mean that’s why you bought it right?
Now what do I mean when I say that you not only save money every month?
The CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation) of Australia conducted research into the real estate market to find out exactly how much it means to consumers to be able to purchase a home that is saving energy in some form or another.
89% of people stated that they would be more attracted to purchase or rent a home that is energy efficient!
Yes; this is in Australia but the mentality will be very similar here in South Africa and all around the world, especially once the market is educated and exposed to the solar industry more!
Wouldn’t you love to sell your home and make more profit on top of you having been saving money month on month AND contributing to a cleaner environment?
With finance options available to you; installing a system doesn’t even have to be a big initial expense! You will be cutting down your electricity bill and using that savings to pay off your solar system or solar water heater and eventually you will reach a point where you have paid off your solar water heater (at not much of an extra cost per month than what you are already paying now) and you are now enjoying the benefit of a system that is just saving you money at no costs!
It’s a win win if you ask me!
