The Solar Rebate Guide for Western Australia
Western Australia, especially Perth, has one of the best climates for solar systems. The growing number of installations in residential households and commercial properties shows the continuous demand for renewable energy, not just in the state but the whole country as well.
Power bills continue to climb in Western Australia. At the same time, solar prices are going down, which are pushing businesses and homes to install solar. For this reason, there was a 33% increase in solar use and installation in 2017.
The abundant sunshine helps greatly, although there is still a lot to go. In fact, Western Australia sits behind the competition, especially compared to South Australia, with almost 50% of properties using renewable power sources. In January 2018 alone, there were more than 16,000 installations in SA.
Nevertheless, interest groups comprised of religious organisations, farmers, and doctors have joined forces to ensure that the state meets the target of 100% use of renewable energy in homes and businesses by 2030. Although many other analysts say it is an ambitious goal, it may still be possible to reach almost 45% by that time.
Some surveys also revealed that ten of Western Australia suburbs are in the top 20 Australian places that have recently adopted solar energy, with Mandurah in the lead.
There is also the discussion about home battery rebates, which many Western Australians believe they should have as well. Battery storage rebate schemes exist in several other parts of the country, except the Perth market. If you are using lithium battery storage, you can get a power bill reduction of up to 80%. That is if the WA state government approves this scheme.
With the rebate ending soon, it is never too late to have a solar system installed on your rooftop. Contact Easy Solar today to learn more about rebates and how you can claim yours.
