Twelve months ago, Mary & Michael had a 6kW solar system installed using a Solar Flex Power Purchase Agreement with Horan and Bird. Solar Flex is where you pay $0 for the solar system and you pay for the solar electricity that the system generates but at rates that are up to 60% less than what you pay directly to from grid.
In light of Mary & Michael’s Solar Flex anniversary we investigated the financial and environmental impact of their system in the last 12 months. Prior to having Solar Flex installed, Mary & Michael were spending $600 a quarter and $2,400 a year on their electricity bill. 12 months on and the couple have saved $605.32 for the year and approximately $150 a quarter without having to purchase the system.
Going solar not only helps you save money on your energy bill, it also helps to reduce your carbon footprint. In the 12 months since having their system installed, Mary & Michael have also saved the environment from 8.95 tonnes of carbon emissions. The average Australia produces approximately 16 tonnes of carbon emissions per year which means that Mary & Michael have reduced their carbon footprint by almost 25% just be going solar!
