Environmental benefits of solar energy

15 March 2021

Did you know that Australian households are directly responsible for 20% of Australia's greenhouse gas emissions?

No. Well to be honest, neither did we. But after we did some digging on the Department of Environment and Energy Website we're keen to get the message out there; not only is solar good for your wallet, it keeps our planet fit and healthy too.

Here are three ways your solar panels help our planet.

Reduced emissions

Solar reduces emissions by ensuring the electricity you use is sourced from clean energy.

Reduction in water and air pollution

Solar energy does not pollute water resources, nor create air pollution.

A renewable source

With the development of solar panels and batteries, a household can rely on the energy generated by their own panels to run their household, essentially going off-grid.
