Soaking Up the Benefits of Aussie Solar Power

  • Post category:Blog

We’re going to start this blog with a bold statement: Australia is the best place in the world for solar power. Here are five reasons why.

There’s Sunshine Galore In Australia.

If you’ve spent any time in Australia, you understand the power of the sun. From learning to Slip, Slop, Slap as an early child to making sure you park the car in a shady spot — there’s an understanding that our sun is powerful all year round. In fact, Australia has an average of 2,800 hours of sunshine each year. (Clean Energy Council (2023).

With this much sunlight, it’s a golden (hour) opportunity to convert all that sunshine into clean, green electricity.

Solar Doesn’t Discriminate. 

Solar power is adaptable to every Australian climate, from the perfect temperatures of our Mid-North Coast to the hot deserts of Western Australia or even the lush greens of Victoria. Solar power works, and it works well. However, it’s not a one-size-fits-all solution. Each home solution will require its own tailoring to ensure you sustainably get the most out of those golden rays.

Solar Power Will Weather The Storm.

Climate change is now putting its fingerprint on the Australian weather from scorching heatwaves, raging bushfires, psycho cyclones and thundering storms. And unfortunately, it’s only going to get more frequent. Solar power becomes a great resilient energy source when paired with smart energy storage solutions like high-tech batteries (see previous blog). Solar installations with storage keep the lights on, providing a reliable and decentralised power source for homes, businesses, and communities. An Aussie must-have for weathering the storms.

Plus, you’re harnessing from the sun and not contributing to the problem. 

Policies That Are Sunnyside Up. 

Thanks to people power, the Australian government isn’t just throwing shade at the issues; but actively supporting the solar revolution. There are incentives, rebates, and feed-in tariffs at federal and state levels to help promote sustainable energy solutions. The Renewable Energy Target (RET) is the great hope, pushing for 33,000 gigawatt-hours of electricity from renewables by 2020 (Clean Energy Council, 2023). These policies aren’t just red tape; they are a green light for individuals and businesses to jump on the solar bandwagon and contribute to a brighter energy future for themselves and the country.

Make It Rain.

Let’s talk about dollars making sense. Solar power isn’t just good for the environment; it’s a goldmine for the economy. The solar market is booming, creating jobs and opportunities faster than you can say “impending climate emergency.” From manufacturing to installation, the solar sector is a job bonanza that doesn’t discriminate – everyone from researchers to maintenance crews. This economic growth isn’t confined to the city limits; it’s reaching regional areas, becoming a shining beacon for sustainable development (Australian Renewable Energy Agency, 2022).

Bright Idea.

So, there you have it — the sunny side of solar power in Australia. From abundant sunlight and tailored solutions for every climate to resilience in extreme conditions and a government-backed solar boom, it’s clear that solar energy is not just a passing trend in Oz; it’s a friendly and powerful force for good. As Australia continues to embrace the sun, it’s not just lighting up homes and businesses — it’s illuminating a cleaner, greener, and more sustainable future for all Aussies and perhaps even inspiring the world to join in the solar celebration. Cheers to harnessing the sun and soaking up the benefits.
