The amount of money you could save on power bills by installing solar or energy storage will be influenced by a number of factors, such as:

  • Your electricity usage and the size of your solar or energy storage system – if you use more power than your system is capable of producing or storing, your savings will be reduced. This can be avoided by choosing the right-sized solution for your needs.

 

  • Your feed-in tariff – the amount your electricity retailer pays you (typically in cents per kilowatt hours) for any excess energy your solar panels generate.

 

  • Your usage patterns – solar panels can only generate electricity while the sun is shining. This means that if your solution doesn’t include energy storage, a property that use a lot of energy during the day may see greater savings than those that consume most of their energy at night. However if you include energy storage in your solution, the times of day or night that you use energy become less important as you’ll be able to use solar energy both day and night.

 

  • Where you live – some areas of Australia receive a lot more sunlight than others, and therefore the same size system will produce different amounts of energy depending on where in the country it is installed. For example, a solar energy system in sunny Brisbane will usually create more energy over a year than the same one in down in Hobart.

ZEN Energy takes all of these factors into account when we present the benefits of your solution to you, and your ZEN Energy Consultant will be able to take you through how we do it. And beware of other companies that might suggest their systems can give you much higher savings than the same system from ZEN. In many circumstances you might find the other company hasn’t considered all the factors we have, or may have made some guesses or assumptions that don’t actually fit with your situation. If you see a large difference between what ZEN suggests your system will do compared to what another company is saying, speak to your ZEN Energy Consultant to see if they can explain the differences for you.

The cost of your solution will depend on factors such as the size you need, whether it includes energy storage, what needs to be done to have it safely and well installed on your property, and the quality of the components that you want to have installed. However in many circumstances, a well-designed and appropriately sized solution could pay itself back in around 7 to 10 years if it includes energy storage, and as quick as 3 to 5 years for a standard solar energy system. Your ZEN Energy consultant will be the best person to advise you on the price of your solution and how quickly you should expect it to pay itself back.
