The Opal Storage
The main benefits of solar power:
How Opal Solar can save you money
Solar payback time: How long before the electricity is on the house?
Solar panels give a dollar return as sure as the sun. The solar break-even point is the time when the savings start to be greater than the price of the system. Also called solar payback time, this measure is a handy way to compare the return value of different photovoltaic (PV) solar systems for your home.
Opal Solar or one of our installers can give you a payback time estimate when you decide which size is right for your property and energy needs.
Save money on your electricity bill
It’s hard to say how much money solar electricity can save you. Industry research indicates you can reduce your electricity bill by up to half and can pay for itself in as little as 10 years.
According to the Clean Energy Council, the average Australian household consumes about 18kWh of electricity every day. A 1-2 kW solar PV system could potentially reduce your overall energy bill by approximately a third. And that’s a safe estimate. A solar heating system can increase the savings even further.
