Isn't it a wonderful feeling when you set out to do something and you finally get to see some results! Last year we got serious about reducing our electricity usage after hearing of a family that we know who have a daily average of 7 kWh. Another family at that time were using 2.9 kWh! We thought these amounts were unacheivable for us, so set ourselves the goal of using under 10.
Yesterday we received a quarterly bill. Not bad, hey?!
My main motivation was to reduce our usage of precious resources so what a bonus to receive money for achieving our objective!!!
I have heard many people saying that it is not worth installing solar since the government reduced the feed in-tarriff of 66 cents for every kilowatt produced, but I disagree. Although we were lucky enough to install under that program, I believe with the rising cost of electricity, it would make perfect financial sense. If you can get your usage down low, you only need a small system to produce more than you use. We only have a 2kW system and look at the credit!
