4 Myths about Solar That Could Be Costing You Money

Have you lined up yourself in the rage for solar panels Perth? Not yet, as you believe that it is just a luxury of riches and they are not as productive as the solar panel companies promise them to be.  

There are lots of myths about Solar Panels Perth’ output, cost, functioning, etc. which is the reason why people in need of them are avoiding solar panels in Perth and unknowingly getting harsh on themselves. Don’t get judgemental until you have the proof in your hands, and in this blog, we bring you some justifications to the widespread myths. 

Myth #1: Too expensive to afford solar panels 

People generally believe that solar panel installation is a big deal involving huge expenditure. But there is a way out too to escape from the high costing solar panels. To an extent, it is true as the solar panel system installation amounts almost equal to owning a car. But these days with a governmental rebate on solar, one can easily save a noticeable amount for some other important tasks. 

To give you an idea, a small-sized solar panel’s cost in Perth is approximately $3,700. But you can also buy a well maintained solar system without a battery to have a reduction in your readings on your electricity bill.

 Myth #2: Solar Panels do not work during winters and rainy days, therefore would be ineffective in lowering the amount in electricity bill 

 It is believed that solar panel in Perth gives no output during cloudy days, at night and snowfall. Do you know that it needs sunlight and not harsh sun rays of summers? They are functional in all seasons. Also, you too may not be aware that the amount of solar power spawned in daylight hours alone is enough to reduce your bill.  


All through the day, people use their own energy, and during the night the green energy caterer goes on rest. The solar energy which is not consumed in a day gets stored into the grid and the owner is paid a feed-in-tariff saving a decent amount of energy. 

Myth #3: Tough maintenance of solar panels 

Servicing and cleaning are vital for not only solar panels but for every device at home for long continuance. You should get your solar panels regularly serviced and cleaned, and trust us that it won’t cost bundles of money. 


According to the solar panel installers in Perth, solar panels require just a hose-down every year and inspection after every 5 years or so. The life of solar panels is usually 25 years and things would be highly different in your life, who knows you could be a billionaire!

Myth #4: Adverse effects of solar panels on the roof

 There is a serious myth amongst people that the installation of solar panels on the roof would result in heavy damage. It is not true! On the contrary, solar panel installation aids in safeguarding your roof from likely damages. The roof is shielded by elements while installing solar panels and you could get to avoid repairing your roof afterward. 

Tips to abolish the myths and extract the best solar power experience 

1. Go for a solar power set-up that accomplishes your needs-   
  •   Try to have access to energy consumption
  •   Interrogate the type and size of panels apt for you 
  •  Go for installing a battery storage system if you are planning to opt for off-grid
2. Opt for low-interest rate loan for it instead of paying in cash – 

Compare and apply for a loan for their installation to hoard on your energy bill. One can also select from green personal loans from the market to finance.  

3. Get an energy plan with a good feed-in tariff-

To confirm your provider is providing you a great return on the energy, evaluate feed-in tariffs to help yourself by knowing the efficiency of the system installed. 

To encourage energy efficiency all over Perth, Government has extended assistance to end-users in the form of solar rebates and feed-in tariffs assuring growth in the renewable energy industry for Price for Solar Panel System in Perth. With Future Solar WA, Small–scale renewable energy scheme, solar feed-in tariff, and state government solar panel rebates & incentives are initiated for the help of buyers along with saving the energy.
