AUSTRALIANS PAY A HIGH PRICE

Australia has some of the most expensive energy bills in the world, because the majority of our energy is still produced using old outdated methods. Yet Australia has abundant free sunshine creating more solar radiation energy per square metre than anywhere else in the world. Going solar makes sense, so start harnessing that energy and start saving with Monier.

SAVINGS BIG AND SMALL

There are various ways to save on energy costs at home, from simply turning off appliances when not in use, to switching from halogen and other bulbs to LED lights. However, while these and other small initiatives help, using solar energy is still the most affordable and efficient way to make big savings.

Improve energy savings even more by including a battery storage unit at the time of installing your new Monier roof with solar powered by Bradford Energy.

A battery reduces energy costs by storing power that your solar system has generated during the most efficient times of day, when everyone is at work or school and household energy consumption is low. Yet when your household uses energy the most, in the morning and evening, your battery comes on-line to deliver free stored-up energy to power everyone's needs.

By adding a Tesla Powerwall 2 or LG-CHEM battery to your solar system, efficiency can be doubled to boost savings by up to 100% – around $3,000 per year or $32,000 over 10 years.
