Solar Power & the Home Business Owner

If you operate a business from home, then putting a solar power system on your roof is a GREAT investment.
Here are our reasons why:
When you’re working from home, the power bills will definitely go up.
That’s no surprise to you, we would imagine.
If you’re home during the day, you’ve got the lights on, the computer on, you might have the air conditioning or heating on, and you’re also probably cooking meals and boiling the kettle each day.
In other words, you are using more power than a home with no one home during the work/school day.
Now if your bills have gone up enough, you might have even tried using less power by switching most of your lights off &/or keeping the TV, computer and aircon use to a minimum, but let’s be honest – it’s pretty difficult to operate a home business without a working computer or lights.
So, What’s The Alternative?
There’s really only one solid, reliable, proven alternative and that is to add a solar power system to your house.
Obviously solar power only works during the day, when the sun is shining, so it’s perfect for home business owners with bigger power bills.
If you put a 5 kW solar power system (for example) on your roof, it could be generating anywhere from 17.5 – 25 kWh of electricity per day.
If you had to purchase that amount of electricity (17.5 – 25 kWh) from the grid at an (estimated) rate of 24 cents per kWh, that would add anywhere from $126 to $180 per month on your power bill, which adds approximately $1,512 to $2,160 EXTRA to your power bill each year!
With a solar power system, you could offset some of that additional cost and reduce your electric bills thanks to solar.
With the price of solar down about 80% in the last 5 years, it’s also a heck of a lot more affordable now than it’s ever been before. And the savings from using solar would help pay your system off a lot faster than a household with no one home during the normal working day, because you are able to use more of the power from your solar system.
