Off-grid energy, here to stay!

I saw the most amazing thing! An advert on TV, a solar company offering an off-grid power system. Wow! My main topic of conversation is stand alone power and now finally a company who is being pro active. Yes!

Do you know what this means? The word is out, now we can go off-grid and produce our own power. Say bye-bye to the power companies and high prices. Say hello to renewable energy and a fixed price.

491687765_485As you can see anyone in Australia can access off-grid energy. All that’s required is your own property, home or business. Once you pay your set up cost there is very little to pay in terms of maintenance.

Give Standard Solar a call 1800 636 636. They will get you off the power grid and onto a better way, a more sustainable way.

Produce power via renewables not fossil fuels.

I hope this info helps. Go green Australia!

Time to choose.

It’s time Australia. Time to think about how your power is produced. At the moment we burn fossil fuels but that’s not sustainable. Most people would agree renewable energy sources are the way to go.

Do we want to pay the man whatever he says? What about cutting out the middle man and paying no power bills ever!

There is a whole new system available, there are no power bills to pay and all energy is totally renewable. Cheaper than paying for grid connected power, stand alone power is the way to go.

stand alone power! Thanks sun & wind! Don't forget Sungel batteries!

stand alone power! Thanks sun & wind! Don’t forget Sungel batteries!

Take charge! Don’t wait for the government or someone else to sort it for you. You can get off the grid today! There are plenty of companies to install stand alone power such as Enviroshop 1300 30 58 33 or Rainbow Power Company 02 6689 1430 look them up online. The cost $30,000 for an average 3 bedroom home. No matter what you have heard in terms of cost I got this figure from the companies doing the work.

Now you know how to get off-grid power use that knowledge, please.

Go Green Australia!

What is stand alone power Tony?

Our prime minister Mr. Abbott is anti-green, wait until he hears about stand alone power, he’ll slap a hefty tax on it. So before he finds out take advantage and get onto stand alone power, tax-free.

Stand alone power, renewable energy & a bank of batteries to store the power. This can be used by anyone anywhere in Australia, it is not restricted to only remote areas. Use sungel batteries the best Aussie made you can get, they last 15 to 20 years. Nothing to pay for all that time, wow.

stand alone power! Thanks sun & wind! Don’t forget Sungel batteries!

Have questions? Ask these guys: enviroshop  1300 30 58 33  Rainbow Power Company  02 6689 1430  Off-grid Energy Australia  1300 334 839  There are more companies online type in stand alone power, too easy.

Why isn’t everyone on stand alone power now, because they don’t know of its existence. You do though.

Here comes crisis point

In Australia with just the advent of solar panels we will eventually hit crisis point. The fossil fuel burning power companies are supplying less power than they used to. They were proud to announce no interruption to supply through Melbourne’s hottest weather. They say solar panels have taken the edge off. I ask you what happens when more solar panels go up? These companies will supply even less. We need a back-up system. We need to get off the power grid.

Who can get you off the grid? The government? Big business? No. They are trying to work out ways of getting onto renewable energy whilst still having us pay for the use of our power. There is one person who can get you off the power grid, it’s YOU.

People all over Australia are slowly moving off the power grid. You can’t get off the power grid if you’ve never heard about stand alone power. Some people are using a bit of DIY, others employing a company to install their stand alone power system. With this system you will have solar panels, solar hot water, a bank of batteries, you may have a small wind turbine. You don’t have to pay the sun or wind for the use of your power. Using a company set-up would be around 30 thousand dollars for an average 3 bedroom home depending on your power usage. The only real cost to maintain this system is to replace the batteries when they ware out. If those batteries are sungel the best Aussie made you can get, they last 15 to 20 years! Thanks C.S.I.R.O. and Battery Energy. Nothing to pay for 15 to 20 years, what company can offer that, these ones. Enviroshop….1300 30 58 33 Rainbow Power Company…..02 6689 1430 Off-grid Energy Australia…..1300 334 839

Let me just say stand alone power becomes cheaper over time. Grid connected power is increasing in price and will continue to do so. Why are they increasing the price of gas, if not to prop up their profit margin. We are heading towards a crisis point.

If you own your own home or business think about stand alone power. Go Green Australia!

Climate Change?

Climate change, how do we the people of Australia combat this? What can we do to lower carbon emissions and reduce the amount of fossil fuels used?

If you’re thinking renewable energy you’re on the right track. If you want a system that does not involve paying money to the man for the use of you’re power, then stand alone power is a viable option.

The stand alone power system consisting of solar panels, solar hot water, small wind turbine and bank of batteries would be a typical set-up for a family home. In the hotter parts of Australia the wind turbine may not be necessary. In doing my research I found that even some people in the green energy sector were not aware of the existence of Sungel batteries. Aussie made Sungel make stand alone power more viable than ever. They are designed to withstand our extreme temperatures and are maintenance free. At a conservative estimate they will continue to operate for 15 years the German counterpart guaranteed for 20 years. In my opinion Sungel will last 20 years considering it’s the same technology. Sungel are new and have only been around for approximately 7 years.

If you are thinking about stand alone power the cost for an average 3 bedroom home would be around 30 thousand dollars. That’s if you don’t already have solar panels or solar hot water. After the set-up cost the only real maintenance cost comes in the form of new batteries. So the ongoing cost comes along every 15 to 20 years! Wow!

For more information call one of these guys, Enviroshop…….1300 30 58 33    Rainbow Power Company…….02 6689 1430    Off-grid Energy Australia…….1300 334 839, or look up stand alone power online.

You may have noticed getting onto stand alone power does not require waiting for the government or big business to make a move in that direction. If you want to get off the power grid you can take action now. Don’t sit around complaining about the price of electricity and gas. Go Green Australia!
