The biggest thing that prevents people from switching to solar is the initial costs of purchasing the system and getting it installed. Many people say no to solar because this initial cost is more than what they’re paying for their traditional energy supply at present. However the costs of fossil fuel are rising rapidly due to their limited supply so this will soon change.
Mark van Heerden Director of power management company, Perpetual Power Systems said: “The argument for the high cost of installation is that once set-up on a solar system and allowing for recouping of your initial investment, the energy is basically free. Once installed, the maintenance on a solar system is also negligible and will cost you very little over a period of 20 to 30 years.”
So when considering solar power think about the long term investment and how much you’ll be saving yourself in energy bills over the time that your solar system will be providing your energy. Added to this with government incentives and rebates the average solar system gives the purchaser a 100 per cent return over its life time, if not more. So what are you waiting for?
