Solar energy has gained more popularity and more and more people are using this alternative source of energy partially or fully. The advantages of using solar energy are numerous as you will make savings on your energy bills, you will reduce your carbon footprint as you the amount of energy that you use and you will find that solar energy is cleaner energy as it does not produce any pollutants. Because the installation costs of solar energy system can be prohibitive and also for increased incentive to use this cleaner form of energy, there is a system of solar rebates in Perth available.
When you install a solar system in your home then you qualify for solar rebates in Perth using Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs). This is calculated using a number of factors such as the size of your solar system and the amount of energy it produces, the location of your home and REC price that you the owner of the house and the solar system installer will agree upon. One REC unit is equal to one hour of electricity megawatt power. The more solar energy that you are able to generate using your solar system the more the savings you are able to get.
You should also note that REC prices change just like the stock markets. To get the most out of your REC units, you can hold on to them when the prices are low then sell when they are higher. To avoid all this altogether, you can take a standard discount from your solar system installer so that you are not affected by fluctuating prices. You can also trade your RECs on the stock market. The best way to benefit from solar rebates is to greatly reduce your electricity use. This is easy in Perth as the weather is mostly sunny.
