Power of one house for change
As someone who’s been at the forefront of our local solar revolution I’d like to share my view of its future role in the real estate market.
There is no doubt that the benefits of solar power generation are hard-wired into the consciousness of potential buyers.
Studies have confirmed that most Australians believe a solar system adds value while real estate agents agree it is a selling point.
As well, with the figures for quick payback adding up best in South Australia, our state is at the forefront of a worldwide move to battery storage.
Right now we are living in a period social commentators are comparing to the Renaissance, when Europe transitioned from the rustic Middle Ages to sow the seeds of the modern world we live in now.
Similarly, this new decade will start a centuries-long era based around renewable energy.
In 20 years time we will look back and understand what role the power of one house has played in this “renaissance”.
Everyone I speak to who has converted their household to solar power generation tells me how good it feels to take charge of their future.
They talk about shaking off that sense of powerlessness that pervades our society, bombarded by negative news about our climate.
You don’t have to be Einstein to predict that very soon domestic solar is going to be an expected feature of a house sale.
And right now, it is the best time to invest with reduced payback periods. The financial incentives that have helped our state become a world leader in renewables are about to be phased out, starting with the maximum battery subsidy of $6000.
In addition to this, Simply Energy VPP is offering up to $5100 paid back at $7/day as a credit, plus a 15c Feed-in Tariff, however, this has limited availability and is filling fast.
Your house is the biggest investment you will make in your lifetime, so I urge you to get up to date with the latest developments before it’s too late.
Give us a call and we’ll be happy to talk you through it all.
