Property Value with Solar
The growing renewable energy trend is now welcoming a new benefit! Home buyers now favor properties with solar systems installed, over the traditional fossil-fueled homes.

Houses selling 20% faster with a 5% added value to the property

Statistics show that properties with solar systems are selling up to 20% faster than the remainder of properties in the market. They are also being sold with a 5% added value to the property. This means not only have homeowners pocketed from $0 electricity bills whilst living in their solar home, but are walking away, selling their home at an increased value.

Why are people opting to buy a solar home?

In recent years electricity bills have continued to rise and are forecasted to accelerate in the perpetual future. Due to this, solar has become a desirable feature with buyers wanting to eliminate electricity bills.

For buyer’s, solar systems are a long-term investment with systems having a lifespan of 20+ years, with little to no maintenance costs. A 20+ year lifespan means a buyer can expect to resell their property with the 5% added value. Assuming they sell within the 20 years.

Environmental Impact

Home buyers are also opting to plunge into a solar property to do their part in preventing further damage to the environment. It’s no secret that harmful emissions are damaging Australian iconic destinations such as The Great Barrier Reef. Living in a solar home means buyers can sleep easy knowing their home doesn’t release harmful carbon dioxide emissions.

It’s never been easier or a better time to install solar

As the popularity of solar systems has increased the prices of installing such systems have dropped and with the added Government Rebate it’s never been a better time to jump on the solar trend.

How to know if solar is right for your property?

It can get overwhelming with so many brands and systems out on the market. Not knowing what system is best suited to your property and energy consumption can leave you in the dark (literally).

Understanding Batteries

Off-Grid Systems

For some households a battery system can be of great benefit and minimise a home’s reliance on the grid. However, it’s important to understand for a battery to be useful your solar system needs to be generating excess energy for the battery to store, which you can then use at night or when the sun is not out.

When selecting a battery, you’ll want to invest in a system that is most suited to your home and can drive the best return on investment (ROI). Despite a larger upfront cost, a higher quality battery may significantly increase your ROI.

    Battery systems start from $6,000 and costs can vary greatly based on the following factors:

  1. Cycle Life-Time

    The number of times a battery can fully charge and discharge.

  2. Battery Power (kW)

    How fast it can be charged or discharged.

  3. Storage Capacity (kWh)

    The maximum amount of energy a battery system can store.

  4. Battery Management System (BMS)

    An electronic ‘smart’ system that gathers data and manages the battery ensuring it does not overload or operate outside of its safe functioning zone..

  5. Inverter

    Battery systems require their own inverter if your solar system does not have a hybrid inverter.

  6. 'All-In-One Unit’

    A system which includes the battery, BMS and an inverter all in one unit.

  7. Warranty

    Length of time or cycles the battery system is under guarantee.

  8. Blackout Protection/Backup

    It’s important to note this is not a common feature of a battery system and could cost thousands of dollars to include. Blackout protection not only requires additional components but also a specialised installation and rewiring. For grid-connected homes, the cost for blackout protection can outweigh the benefit.

Additionally, if your purpose for adding battery is to go Off-Grid and become completely independent from the grid you will need to ensure your solar system can generate enough energy to power your home and your battery system is large enough to store this energy. For homes in metro areas going Off-grid is not cost effective and is only recommended for those in remote areas with limited access to the grid. Off-grid solar systems with battery start at approximately $30,000.
