It’s 34 degrees outside the sun is beating down fiercely and you can feel your skin starting to burn after just a couple of minutes exposure.
So how can this hot, hot summer sun actually keep you cool?
You can be cool and comfortable by running your air-conditioner on solar power!
Air-conditioning is an ideal appliance for solar power because you are using your electricity as you make it, right when you need it the most.
With solar panels on your roof you can use your own power as you make it and run your air conditioning so you can remain cool and comfortable during even the hottest days.
In fact the hotter it gets the more power you make and the cooler you can be!
Your solar panel system is set up so that the solar power is used first and power from the grid is only used when there isn’t enough solar power available.
It makes good sense to use your own power first and effectively get paid 15.197 cents per kw hour, rather than try to build up credits at a measly 5.5 cents per kw hour of the current feed-in tariff.
You will be 3 times better off by using your own power than you would selling it back to the grid.
Solar power still works well, however these days, the lower feed-in tariffs means it takes longer to build up credits by selling your excess power back to the grid.
Despite the low feed in tariff, solar power is still a great investment. Any power you make and use yourself is power you don’t have to pay for.
Payback times are longer with the lower tariff, but you will still be better off with a solar system on the roof.
There are also finance options for those wanting to go solar without having to pay the full installation cost up front.
