AGL Solar: Helping Australia go Solar

Solar energy, like many other clean tech innovations, continues to gain popularity as citizens around the world learn about limited resources. More and more consumers are making environmentally conscious choices in their home and in the office, and one of the best ways to ensure that your home is eco-friendly is by choosing solar energy.

Solar energy can be used to heat water and supply all the energy needed for your home. Solar panels on rooftops are comprised of photovoltaic (PV) cells which collect sunlight and turn it into DC (Direct Current) electricity. The advantages of solar are inumerable: not only are you helping to conserve resources, solar usually saves money for the homeowner– and in some cases, your solar power can actually pay YOU! If you have a net meter system, you might use less electricity from the grid, because the electricity your solar power system generates can help power your home. And using less electricity from the grid means less to pay on your bill. Also, if your solar power system generates more electricity than your home requires, you will receive credits on your bill for any electricity that is fed into the grid. But if you have a gross meter system, any electricity your solar power system generates is fed into the grid and you will receive credits on your bill for that electricity.
