Are solar system’s worth the investment?

Latest Posts

Solar power is a big talking point in South Australia, with more and more homeowners making the switch to solar energy. Although switching to a green power source has immense positive effects on the environment, people who are thinking about installing solar often ask themselves the same question, are solar systems worth the investment?

Obviously, the answer to this question changes from system to system, however, in the majority of cases, users are reaping the financial benefits of installing a solar system. There are considerations that can be made that will affect the overall efficiency of your system, and therefore determine whether this option is saving or costing you money.

Battery Storage

By implementing a solar system with battery storage, you can ensure that you are getting the best possible value from your solar system. A solar storage system works by taking the power that is generated throughout the day, and using the excess to power batteries for use when the sun isn’t present. By investing in batteries, you will become less reliant on electrical power from the grid, which can continue to incur significant energy bills. This option ensures that, depending on your energy usage, your power usage is mostly sourced from solar.


Finding the perfect size system is vital to the success of the solar investment. Using the advice of solar system professionals like SunEnergy, you can determine which size system works for your budget, home and power consumption. The size is particularly relevant if you wish to create a storage system, where the smaller kw systems do not create enough excess power to be stored. Similarly, a system that is too large for your power consumption will result in significantly higher installation and other upfront costs. By consulting with a professional, you will receive a customised system designed to give you the best return on investment possible.


Put simply, taking care of your system will enhance the durability and effectiveness of your solar system. It isn’t difficult, and it can make a huge difference to the amount of money going into your system. By cleaning your solar panels regularly, and running routine checks on the effectiveness of your system, you can ensure that the panels will withstand the test of time and work at maximum capacity. The price of replacing panels can be avoided by focusing on routine maintenance.


SunEnergy’s Pay As You Save program (PAYS) allows you to avoid an upfront cost, and use the money you are saving on your electricity bills to pay off the system over time. By doing this, you can ensure that your investment is worth your money, as the initial payments come directly from savings.
