When the world goes a bit crazy…
As if we don’t have enough to worry about, a new buzzword is being dropped into our daily vocabulary.
We all know about “solar”, but how about “solar sponge”. What is it? Do we wash ourselves with this? Does it grow in the ocean? Is it some sort of devilish plot to deny us solar savings?
Let’s look at the facts of one of the biggest changes set to happen in South Australia’s solar history.
Late last year SA Power Networks proposed a new tariff structure offering major discounts to encourage households to use high-power-consuming appliances, such as water heating, pool pumps, washing machines and clothes dryers, to the middle of the day rather than overnight.
Nicknamed a “solar sponge”, it will be offered from 10am to 3pm with a proposed starting date of July 1, 2020.
This sounds great for those staying at home and who can accommodate this change, however the flip side of this is that morning and evening peak times will be charged at 125% of the current rate.
For households and families where individuals are at work between 8am until 5pm, you will fall straight into the high tariff time periods, which means that your power bills will be further increased.
Sharpe Energy Hub’s in-house engineers and design consultants will analyse your home’s energy usage requirements and will engineer systems to not only give you $0 energy bills, but will save you thousands, if not, tens of thousands over the lifespan of the systems.
Also, remember that once your system has been paid, you will continue with $0 electricity bills for many years to come. Think this sounds too good to be true? Go visit Sharpe Energy Hub at 71 Port Road, Thebarton.
