Buying a property and renting it out for income can be a worthwhile investment. In fact, according to online tallies, about 20% of the Australian population or about 2.2 million people, are now doing so! In addition, many people are now turning to solar for their energy needs in Australia. Is this a good idea for property investors, however? Does it bring landlords any benefits? Yes, we think it does! Solar can bring benefits to both tenants and owners that make it a smart investment in the long run. Here’s how.
Solar power is a true phenomenon. Australia has grown to become a powerhouse in solar energy, slowly leaving coal behind in its own dry dust. The rate of solar installations on Australian homes now greatly outdoes the global average, placing Aussies ahead of Germany, Japan, and America’s solar-leading state of California. But is it true you can actually power your entire home using solar energy? Is that possible or is this actually a bit far-fetched? Yes, it is true. Your whole home can be powered by the sun if your solar generation matches your energy consumption and you have a reliable way to store the energy you’ve gathered during the day from the sun.
An important part of entering the age of retirement is considering how to manage finances for your home. One investment many don’t consider is the installation of solar energy.
However, there are many benefits to this. Such as the monthly cost savings, adding value to your home, and becoming more conscious about the environment.
In this post, we cover a few of these benefits in more detail.
Solar energy is at the forefront of the world’s energy revolution. More and more Australians are turning to solar energy to power their homes and businesses. In fact, Australia has the highest amount of solar use globally, with one in four homes now supporting rooftop solar installations.
You want to get the most out of your solar energy, and part of this involves knowing which of your appliances and systems use the most electricity. Knowing the major electricity-consuming appliances or systems can help you use your energy more efficiently, saving you both time and money.

Solar power is a great solution that you definitely want it to stick around!
The solar panel lifespan of your solar system will depend on various factors. These include the local weather in your area, the quality of the panels you install, and how well they are maintained over time, to name a few.
