The sun is a powerful source of energy. It makes sense then to harness its energy to power your own home or business.
At AGL, we can help you do this in a variety of ways. From heating your hot water, or providing electricity for your entire household’s electricity consumption, we’ve got a solution.
We’ve also got a dedicated solar energy website full of information or ways to sign up. You can visit it here. Or here’s a very brief overview on solar energy.
In short, it’s electricity that is created when sunlight is converted into electricity using photovoltaic (PV) panels. These PV panels are usually placed on a north-facing roof of a building.
A large proportion of a household’s total energy consumption is used on heating water. By using the electricity generated by your solar panels to power your hot water system, you could reduce your electricity bills.
You may also be able to use solar electricity to operate all the electrical appliances in your home. The more panels you have, the more electricity you generate, and the more you can save.
There are many benefits to solar energy. Here’s just a few:
The more electricity your solar energy system generates during the day, the less you have to buy from the electricity grid.
The process of producing solar electricity is silent and produces no greenhouse gas emissions or other polluting by-products.
If you create electricity that you don’t use, you can receive solar rebates when you feed it back into the grid. How's it installed?
