• Solar PV, Solar Hot Water Systems - Breakthrough Trial

  • In Western Australia a breakthrough trial has found that the average household can cut their electricity usage by a staggering 57.9 percent by installing solar PV, solar hot water systems and energy efficient appliances. The trial started in 2009 and included approximately 14,000 homes in the eastern suburbs of Perth with residents' saving an average of $900.00 per year.

    With the possibility of Australia having close to the highest electricity prices in the world the case to install a solar PV system is now clearer than ever. A solar PV system in conjunction with a range of energy efficient measures could see a homeowner easily surpass the 57.9 per cent savings revealed in the WA trial.
