Is Solar Energy Worth it in Brisbane?
As Australia’s fastest-growing solar company, we can tell you that installing solar on your Brissy home is now more worth it than ever. Your neighbours will agree with you! Did you know that 37% of homes in Queensland already have solar, with Brisbane leading the way? That’s says something. It says that solar panels have been reducing in price for years while the technology continues to improve. Most homeowners are paying back their solar systems in close to 3 years!
Regardless of your budget, solar can work for your home because if you can afford your energy bill, you can afford solar. The reason is, the amount you save by installing solar is more than what you would pay to finance the system! Not to mention, most solar panel systems are designed to last up to 25 years, with all of our offered brands providing a 25 performance warranty!
With bills rising up to 10% each year, solar can prevent you from spending more than is fair on power. In addition, solar will curb your family expenses now, next quarter, and ten years from now, with homeowners saving five figures over the lifetime of their system. So the short answer is ‘Yes, solar panels are definitely worth the investment in Brisbane!’

Are Solar Panels Expensive in Brisbane?
Why do people install solar? By and large, there are two reasons. First, most of our customers look to save on their bills and put more money towards their future and family. As well as that, it’s a great way to help the environment. However, with savings top of mind, it makes sense to wonder, can I afford solar? Is it expensive? Will I get a return?
Our motto is, “If you can afford your power bill, you can afford solar!”. What does that mean? Unlike a new car or new TV, solar is an investment designed to give you a return from Day 1. Once panels are on your roof and the system is switched on, your home stops buying power from the grid. The less you buy, the less you spend. That means your bills are going to look a lot less bulky!
However, solar isn’t free. Most homeowners choose to finance their system, paying it off week by week. All this is to say; most homeowners save MORE or equal to the amount they spend to finance the system. So it costs next to nothing out of pocket to get started, and within 3-5 years, you will have paid the system off entirely. So no matter your budget, everyone can reduce their bills to pay for their solar! It’s a no brainer.
