The Climate Commission’s report The Critical Decade: Generating a renewable Australia, recently highlighted the potential of renewable energy in Australia, in particular solar power and wind power.
The Climate Commission mentions that the country is under-utilising its renewable energy potential, in particular solar power and wind power, with rooftop solar power possibly being the cheapest source of power for retail users in areas with high electricity prices.
In addition to this, the Climate Commission believes that solar photovoltaic and wind power could be the cheapest source of power in Australia by 2030.
Renewable energy is a great industry which will create more opportunities for employment, business investments, whilst reducing carbon emissions.
With the momentum in Australia for renewable energy building, it is believed that the Australian economy could be powered almost entirely by renewable energy in the coming decades.
Households and businesses now have the power to take an initiative in reducing their dependency on the national electricity grid through rooftop solar panel installations. Installations can be easily completed by accredited solar installers and designers such as True Value Solar.
Once installed and connected to the grid, electricity generated by solar panels can be used in the household and business, with excess electricity fed back into the grid.
