History of the use of Solar roof tile in Australia and future trends

Interest in solar energy has been on the rise in Australia since it was first introduced in the 1970s. These early installations were a response to the 1973 oil crisis and they were mainly used for hot water systems. Today, Australians are still keen to use solar power and avoid the high price of using grid electricity. Solar roof tiles are a great solution for generating free, clean energy from renewable sources. Solar systems are here to stay for the long term as more and more people look to help reduce Australia's dependence on fossil fuels. 

Homeowners and designers are becoming more energy efficient and people are seeing the value of installing solar roof tile systems in their homes. Some real estate agencies report that homes with solar systems are selling 20% faster than homes without solar roof tile systems. This fact shows that solar energy is highly valued by most homeowners. In Australia, more than three million homes have solar systems and the government is constantly looking for ways to encourage people to install new solar systems. Meanwhile, when most people choose a roof tile for their home, they want something that combines energy efficiency, durability and longevity. Solar roof tiles are an intriguing development in the solar industry. If you are considering installing solar panels on your home, solar roof tile or integrated roof panels may be the best option for you.

BIPV solar roof tiles and panels are only going to become more common in Australia as solar panels become more popular as a way to reduce your electricity bills.

Can I also store my excess energy production somewhere?

Yes, this is possible, for example, using a home battery. This is a storage place where you can keep your unused generated energy.

Is solar energy easy to combine with other forms of energy?

If you don't produce enough solar energy to meet your own energy consumption, you can use fossil fuels to make up for the rest (unless, of course, you buy green energy from your energy supplier). The costs for this energy are on your energy bill.

Is it best for me to put solar panels or solar collectors on my roof?

The main difference between solar panels and solar collectors is that solar panels are used to generate electricity using the sun. A solar collector captures the heat from the sun and transfers this heat via a pipe system to a solar boiler. It just depends on what you would like to make more sustainable, the electricity or hot water. You can of course also choose both options.

Does it still make sense to take solar panels now that the netting may not take place and something will take its place?

It remains useful to have solar panels installed, despite the fact that the netting scheme changes. If the solar panels are purchased before 2023, you will benefit from the maximum netting percentage (100%) until 2031. After 2023, this percentage will decrease, but it will still be attractive to install solar panels on your roof.
