How much can you really save by going solar?

4 posts in this topic

A relative lives in a rural area outside of Melbourne. She gets better ROI from investing in tank water and wood heating rather than investing in solar panels.

But I guess technology is advancing and it depends where you live. As a renter it doesn't make much difference to me, I just need to turn off the lights!

I might do the sums again after my next energy bill!

$395 for the 3 months ending in mid-Feb, vs the average $250-270. But there was little choice on using the A/C given the weather.

Meanwhile, the new release of the Tesla powerball is about half the size and twice the storage of the previous model. It is beginning to resemble the early history of personal computing. If they hike gas prices and the price of the powerball drops in the future, I might be tempted to go 100% electricity in the future. Not sure how long I'll stay in the house. But it should add value to it as well.
