Solar panels and green energy have made great progress in the last few days. The NSW Energy Minister Chris Hartcher recently said that new solar panels will be able to connect them to the power grid and that utility companies will be required to pay for customers for the extra power their solar panels make. This has actually been the standard in some areas, however some utility companies where refusing to allow customers to connect their solar panels to the grid.
So what does this mean for you? It means that there has never been a better time to buy solar panels. Not only are there more cheap solar panels for sale than ever before, the efficiency for each size has gone up, and now the government is finally starting to pass legislation that is making running your house on solar power electricity easier and cheaper than ever.
In addition to the government taking actions against utility companies refusing to add solar panels on to the grid, many governments are also offering grants, tax incentives, low-interest loans, and rebates to install solar panels. With these discounts, and the fact that you can sell the power you make, going solar has never made more sense.
