Why more households are turning to solar and battery storage
Australian households are embracing solar power and battery storage in greater numbers as energy costs rise and solar rebates make transitioning to a cleaner energy future more affordable.
Households are using renewable energy to power everything from heating and cooling to electric vehicle charging, slashing energy bills in the process as Australia leads the world in rooftop solar uptake.
According to Solar Victoria, a typical household can expect to save $890 every year on their electricity bill by harnessing the power of solar energy.
“We’re actually fast approaching 30 per cent of homes in Australia having a solar system on the roof,” says CEO and Managing Director of RACV Solar Andy McCarthy. “Homes and businesses are just getting on with it. They want cheaper, cleaner energy and they want to secure their energy future.”
