When a big power bill comes through, it’s natural to question it. Did I really use that much electricity last month? Could there be a mistake with the meter reading?
Unfortunately, most of the time, the bill you received is correct. It’s just that it’s easy to take for granted how much power we actually use day-to-day.
In Victoria, the average annual household power bill is $1,602.00. And let’s face it, the big energy companies aren’t lowering their electricity prices anytime soon because we’re all doing it tough. And don’t get us started on power blackouts. Right when you need it most, when the temperature hits 40 degrees + the grid fails. Quite frankly, it’s not good enough.
“Solar is an easy and now affordable way for you to take control of your electricity bills”
However, there is light at the end of the tunnel (pardon the pun). In Australia, solar hardware is getting cheaper and the Victorian Government is also helping households with a solar PV rebate. Eligible households can now claim a rebate up to $2,225 on the cost of a solar PV system.
So stop letting the big power companies take you for a ride. None are really taking renewable energy seriously and with coal off the table – where does that leave you? Swapping back and forth between the lot to save a few dollars each year – as the ‘energy watch’ groups would have you do?
In Australia, an average of 10-20 solar panels are being installed every minute, so it’s clearly no longer a matter of if you install solar, but when.
