Why Invest In Solar When Working From Home?


Covid-19 changed the working environment forever. Lockdown taught us that a number of roles could operate remotely with ease. A hybrid workstyle is the new normal that benefits both employer and employee. For example, a recent survey from Tracking Happiness shows remote work is directly linked to happiness. And we know that a happy employee is always more productive and efficient. Win-win situation.

The downside of working from home is the rise in power bills. You start to use more lighting on cloudy days, aircon/heat pumps are turned on, and you even explore your culinary skills by cooking lunch during the day. Some researchers say the increase in home energy use can easily reach 20%-30%.

As your consumption increases, a Solar System is the answer. Here are some reasons why this may be the perfect time to invest in a Solar System for your home.

Get the most out of daylight.

A Solar System works during the day when the sun is shining, so the Panels will cover a massive chunk of daytime electricity consumption. This means you will buy a lot less from your electricity supplier. Plus, you can get your ROI faster by maximising self-consumption (using Solar Panels' power).

Working from home provides you with an opportunity to complete more high-energy tasks throughout the afternoon when the Solar is at its max. Run those appliances that need a lot of power, such as the washing machine and dishwasher. This will reduce the payback period, as more savings means the quicker cover of the upfront cost of the Solar System paid.

Get personal energy independence.

Energy independence means you don't need to rely on the grid as much to power your home or business.

Once you have a Battery-backed Solar System, you will have a power supply even when the grid is down. Your Solar Panels will continue to generate energy, during the daytime, through the power cut. That energy will power selected circuits in your home and charge the battery.

Increase home value.

Multiple researchers around worldwide confirm that buyers are willing to pay more for a property with pre-installed Solar Panels. Most of the expenses related to Solar energy are upfront; you start to save money over time. But when you buy a house with a Solar System, you start saving immediately.

Here at Harrisons Solar, we teamed up with to analyse thousands of homes where we have installed Solar to see what impact installing a Harrisons Solar System has on the value of a home. We compared the houses sold after Solar Panels were placed with the other comparable in the area and found that, on average, Harrisons Solar increased the home's selling price by 4.4% or $35K. The Top-10 houses increased by an average of 45%; the lowest ten still increased by an average of $10,000.
