Quick quiz! Winter is the best time to:

  1. Dig your umbrella out of storage
  2. Wear ugg boots at home
  3. Wear ugg boots outside the home
  4. Have solar panels installed

The answer is… all of the above!

If you’ve been thinking about solar but haven’t taken the next step, here are three reasons to put things in motion in the colder months.

WA is a sunshine state

Technically it’s Queenslanders who have “the sunshine state” bragging rights, but if you’re living in WA, you’re still living in one of the sunniest places on the planet. Even in winter we generally have a lot of sunny days – and your solar panels could be putting all of that sunshine to work for you across the year.

The hot summer sun will generate the most solar energy and by acting now you could get everything in place before summer arrives.

You could skip the queues

Solar installations can be a lot like pool installations: the demand suddenly spikes as the weather warms up. 

The whole process can take a while by the time you get quotes, choose your system and get your installation booked. If you start by learning what to look for in a solar supplier and request a quote now, you’ll be a step ahead of the rest. This means you might be able to start enjoying the benefits of your solar system before the demand for solar power goes up in spring and summer.

You might save in time for summer

Summer is when your household expenses might go up with holidays, entertaining and Christmas shopping. If you decide to go ahead with solar now, there’s a chance you could be saving on your future bills by the time the party season swings around.
