How much can I REALLY save by going solar?

You’ve probably seen many solar company claims that you could save thousands by adding a solar system to your home. 

Sounds too good to be true, right? 

But in this case, it actually is.

By adding a solar system to your home, you could save 58% (or more) off your quarterly electricity bill, in addition to protecting yourself from inevitable future electricity price hikes.

As an example, Huglo customers with a quarterly electricity bill of $350+ who add a Huglo Solar system, save between 54% – 78%.Your solar system’s payback period is as little as 4 years. To put it another way, it’s a 25% return on your money. 

With electricity prices ever-on-the-rise, installing a solar system is one of the lowest risk, highest return investments you can make. 

How is this possible?

The sunny Australian skies offer a goldmine of savings for smart consumers, not to mention a way to build a sustainable future for our country.

Consecutive governments have been quick to recognise these benefits, providing generous incentives for those who choose to go solar.

How you save with solar is a pretty simple process:

1
Your solar roof panels capture sunlight 
2
Your solar inverter converts this into electricity to use for free (as you don’t need to draw from the main electricity grid)
3
Your system produces more power than you need, and this automatically feeds back to the main electricity grid
4
Your retailer buys this electricity from you (known as your solar feed-in tariff), and gives you a credit on your bill

Note that in the evenings, when there’s no sunlight and high household electricity demand, you’ll still need to draw from the main electricity grid at a cost. But this is offset by the savings you make during the day.

There is an option of adding on a battery to your solar system, which stores the excess power generated during the day.

You can then use this in the evening and avoid drawing from the grid, effectively saying goodbye to those big power bills!  

As your energy mate, we also offer our customers a unique service by assigning you a dedicated electricity expert. 

They’ll ensure you get the most out of your solar system with our ‘Huglo Electricity Plan Tune Up ’ – a 6 monthly assessment using our Electricity Price Plan Comparison service.

This means further electricity savings of $400+ each year.

 Ok, but how much does a solar system cost?

Like everything in life, you get what you pay for.

There’s a huge difference between ‘cheap’ solar and ‘quality’ solar. 

Here at Huglo Solar, we vetted the many brands available and carefully selected only those that are high quality and able to handle the harsh Australian climate.

The total installed cost of a solar system varies, as it depends on the system size and how difficult it is to install.For an average sized 6.6kW solar system (or around 18 panels) which services a 4-person home, it costs as little as $6500 upfront, or $25 via finance  per week.

But I don’t have $6500 just lying around to buy a solar system

That’s ok, as you have an option.

You can obtain a $0 deposit green loan to finance your solar system.

Huglo Solar partners with one of Australia’s most reputable home improvement lenders, Brighte, to offer Aussies affordable finance to access sustainable energy systems. 

As solar provides such a good return on investment, plus interest rates are still historically low, the cost of a properly designed solar system can be covered by your electricity savings.

So in essence, your electricity bill savings pay off your loan for the system. After 5 years, you’ll then get the full benefit of a reduced electricity bill from your generating solar system. 

There's more good news on the cost-front.

Couple entering details on a computer

The federal government provides a generous incentive to reduce the upfront cost of your solar system. It’s known as the Small-Scale Renewable Energy Scheme.

The amount you get depends on:
1
Where you live
2
Your system size (the more panels, the greater the discount)
3
When you installed it

The discount typically ranges from $3000 to $4500.

But there is one small catch – the scheme ends in 2030. And the amount you receive reduces by around 10% each year until this date. So the sooner you install a solar system, the bigger your discount.

I’m liking the sound of this. But why would I choose Huglo Solar over other solar companies?

Now you have a grasp of how solar can save you big bucks, here are 4 reasons  why we’d love you to choose Huglo to be your solar energy mate:

1

Only quality industry-leading solar products at a competitive price

Having been in the solar industry for a while now, we know exactly what products are on the market.
And unfortunately, a lot of them are substandard (read, cheap), especially for our harsh Aussie conditions.

That’s why we’ve made the business decision to avoid selling such systems. We’ve deliberately chosen to only offer quality solar systems at a competitive price. 

For peace of mind, all our solar panels  and inverters  come with manufacturer warranties from well-known, reputable companies. 
But we go one step further.We also offer a 5 year 'Wrap Around' Warranty. If you have any technical issues with your system during this period, we’ll fix them for free.

That’s how confident we are in the quality of the systems we choose to install.
