Solar cells power more than just the lights in a home
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/21/2013 -- In the last half-decade there have been plenty of reasons to feel like money is tight. The worsening economy, rising gas prices, and difficulty in maintaining employment can put pressure on the wallet and bank account. Over the last five years electric bills have been rising as well, and that makes it a perfect time to start looking into the investment that is solar panels. That is why SolarMarket.com.au has made a useful infograph to explain the rising of energy prices and the way to lower your bills via solar panels.
In the past 36 months, the energy bill for the average Australian has risen over 35%. That number, coupled with the fact that a 37% jump is predicted by the Australian Energy Market by the year 2014, should have everyone realizing that the old-standard of energy use can no longer be tolerated. This is especially true for those already attempting to deal with housing payments that place them 'underwater' or those attempting to keep up with a mortgage.
Solar Market's infographic notes a 2011 report by an independent pricing tribunal that stated there was an increase of 18% from last year due to a number of factors including additional networking maintenance and construction costs, Federal Labor Renewable Energy Target, retail increases in billing, and additional costs. To add to the continued hikes, 2013 is likely to see a 16.4% hike from the current numbers.
But it is not all terrible news, because solar paneling one's house can be the best investment to cutting down on all the costs and avoiding the continuation of hikes in one's prices.
Solar panels do not just turn on the lights. According to the infographic, heating water is another useful way solar energy can reduce your overall electricity payment, while electric heating is another great possibility. Furthermore, air conditioning and freezers can also be powered by solar energy. Imagine the sun being used to cool things down. Of course, lighting and washing/drying machines are also powered by solar cells.
All of these equate to a lowered bill. While the solar panels do take an initial investment, overtime one will save money. More importantly, one will avoid the madness that is continually rising fees that blindside a homeowner each and every year.
