Understanding if solar is right for you 

During the day, your solar power system (alsoknown as a solar PV system) provides electricityto your house, reducing the amount of energy youbuy from your electricity provider. It also meansthe energy you’re using is renewable.

Sourcing your energy from the sun can be a smart move,
for your wallet and the planet.
This guide outlines what to look out for, what questions to ask and how to make the right choice for your home or office. 

What are the benefits of solar power? 

Save money: you’re using electricity that you’ve produced, instead of buying it from a provider; and if you are using less energy than you’re producing, your energy provider may buy it off you to share with your community. 
Reducing your impact on the environment: by using the sun to power your home, you are generating zero-emissions energy for yourself and possibly your neighbours. 
It also helps you reduce reliance on providers: instead of depending solely on an energy provider, you are making some of your own energy. 

If your roof is large enough, faces north, east or west, and is not too shaded, then you can likely install solar panels. We can help you make this assessment. 
It usually takes between 5 and 10 years for your savings to exceed the cost depending on the cost and size of system in addition to where you live and how much power you use.
