Solar Payback Period

Solar PV System is an investment and like any other investment, the key to its value is the size of its return and how quick it can recover its outlay. This is one of the questions people often ask before investing in Solar PV.

DON'T BE FOOLED BY CHEAP SOLAR

As the saying goes, you always get what you pay for, so if you are looking for cheap deals you shouldn’t expect good quality! Same goes with Cheap Solar Panels being advertised everywhere. People are usually deceived with these cheap advertisements promising a quality experience. In the end, they lose money because although the initial investment may be low, the long-term effect will ultimately be more expensive for the buyer.

Solar might be the answer to crippling power bills

Power bills are soaring across Australia, but in remote areas with extremes of temperature the cost can be cripplingly high. In Walgett in far north west NSW, temperatures can dip to below zero in winter and climb to over 50 degrees Celsius in summer making it expensive to heat and cool homes. "You pay a lot of money for the power, it's hurting a lot of people," said local elder Clem Dodd. Fears are growing among elders that people in poorly insulated and poorly equipped housing are descending further into poverty.

A Major Breakthrough That Could Put Solar Power Anywhere. Worth checking.

A new type of electrode developed by researchers at RMIT University has the potential to not only boost the capacity of existing energy storage technologies by 3000 per cent, but it opens the door to the development of flexible, thin film, all-in-one solar capture and storage. We're talking the means to self-powering smart phones, laptops, cars and buildings. And it has all been inspired by a plant. The new electrode is designed to work with supercapacitors, which can charge and discharge power much faster than conventional batteries. Supercapacitors have been combined with solar, but their wider use as a storage solution is restricted because of their limited capacity.

Too good to be true? Find out and comment below.

The world's largest lithium ion battery will be installed in South Australia in 100 days under an agreement between Tesla, Neoen and the State Government. Tesla will build the battery which will store energy from French renewable company Neoen's Hornsdale Wind Farm. If the 100-day deadline isn't met, it's free. The project will be in place before summer.

Don’t just save money but make money with your rooftop solar. Find out how and comment below.

That's what Fred and Eglantine Oualid are hoping to do as soon as next year. They don't have a solar system but are strong believers in renewable energy. "We like to choose where the energy comes from and who gets our money for it," said Fred Oualid. He finds dealing with the big energy providers frustrating and is unsure where his energy comes from.
