Many seniors have experienced the shock of a large power bill at the end of a cold winter, or during a sweltering summer.
Some have the financial capacity to cope and others are using their hard-earned retirement savings to pay the bill. For many seniors rising electricity costs have far greater ramifications.
More seniors than ever before are feeling the sting, a situation that could continue to worsen given the rise in electricity prices and decrease in feed-in tariffs.
This is why many seniors are turning to solar and solar battery storage; It’s a clean, renewable solution to combat rising energy prices, by eliminating reliance on the power grid, neutralising power bills.

The appeal of solar panels + solar batteries
Solar panels take the suns rays and convert it into usable energy in your home, from lights to appliances and any other electrical items. Solar batteries then store any excess energy for the household to use later, rather than drawing from the grid and any unused energy can be sold back to the grid. With many seniors on a fixed income, investment in solar and solar batteries deliver peace of mind for the future

In 2016 a New South Wales customer installed a solar battery, after his first quarterly billing cycle, he had seen a significant decrease with a reduction of $246.43 on his electricity bill from the same time the previous year.
It’s great that you’ve taken the steps to reduce your energy bill, however, the end goal is to neutralise your power bills. To achieve this, you need to get your system serviced, checked and maintained annually, so you can keep those electricity bills down!
