If you are tired of opening the electricity bill every month to see shocking figures, you're not alone. Thousands of people in the Macarthur region have already had enough of it, and have decided to convert the power supply for their homes and businesses to solar energy.
Electricity prices in Australia are simply staggering. Among the highest electricity costs in the world, and definitely the most expensive when compared to median income levels. The crisis in the industry became so bad that the ACCC recently had to step in and impose very strict rules for pricing and advertising in the retail electricity market, and their 2018 investigation into the industry declared the situation to be "unacceptable and unsustainable" (p4, par 1).
Solar power in Macarthur NSW holds the promise of helping you get free from the cycle of high energy costs and ever-increasing prices with battery ready solar. It also allows you more independence, as you'll be in control of your own energy supply. That means if the neighbourhood around you is in the midst of a power blackout, your home is unaffected. You'll be able to run your appliances and stay comfortable. In more extreme situations, like emergencies, having solar power available to your home could even help you survive.
And finally, of course, switching to solar is good for the environment. We are now, in fact, at a point where going solar should not be considered as an option, but as essential. According to the World Economic Forum (among other organisations), taking action right now is crucial.
If enough people switch to solar power, it will make a very big difference to the long-term sustainability of our planet, and will help to (over time) reverse a lot of the damage that has already been inflicted on the environment. It will take many years for the Earth to recover, but if we are sincere in our efforts, it can be done.
