What Is Special About Solar in Gold Coast:
With a warm sea climate, the Gold Coast experiences warm and wet summers. Most rainfall is seen in the afternoon and the evening so the humidity may increase in summer. The winters are soft and relatively dry. With around 300 sunny days a year, the Gold Coast is a year-round destination and best suit for Solar Energy.
The first solar panels were invented over 60 years ago and have been making great strides in technological advancement. In the past ten years, solar photovoltaics (PV) technology has been utilized as a renewable energy source. PV is a sophisticated technology that produces electricity from sunlight directly without moving any parts. The advancement of solar technology has increased efficiency to 46%, a marginally large increase from 19-21% efficiency when solar panels first came onto the market.
Interestingly, the advances in solar panel technology have decreased the cost of solar panels over time. In fact, the International Renewable Energy Agency reported the cost of PV energy has dropped by 82% since 2010. Residential solar costs specifically have fallen between the range of 47-80$%, resulting in many homeowners becoming increasingly more interested in solar energy. Furthermore, electricity prices in the past ten years have increased by more than 117% in Australia. At that rate, Australians can expect to pay over a thousand dollars more a year on energy costs by 2029.
There are many benefits associated with solar energy use, one being that it is a renewable energy source that benefits the environment. Research conducted by the School of Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering (SPREE) found schools in the greater Brisbane area alone could provide enough solar energy power in the area. Moreover, Brisbane city is currently on the path to green, and Governments in Brisbane are initiating plans to increase the supply of clean, low-cost electricity to meet daily energy needs while also improving the environment.
As part of this path to green, the Federal Government offers loans and grants of up to $10,000 on a ten-year plan. The Benefits of purchasing solar power include:
- No large upfront costs
- Lower energy bills due
- The provider takes care of ongoing maintenance and repairs
Ampulse aids customers by building packages that suit our client needs and ensure clients are buying the latest technology quality solar panels that last, and ultimately lower your energy bill to zero.
Solar panels convert light from the sun into electricity, allowing you to use power generated from a free and endless source of energy in your home or business. Living in Queensland, we are fortunate to have sunny days almost all year round. So with the right solar system, your electricity generation may be more than you actually use. Ampulse Energy will assist you in selecting and installing the right solar PV system for your electrical needs. Invest in solar energy today, and see returns within just 3 to 4 years.
