Greenhouse Vs Green-Homes

By: premiersolar | Posted: 20th June 2011

Most of us do not have any idea how much carbon we emit to the atmosphere every day. Recent studies show that Australia is emitting about 437,045.00 metric tons of carbon emissions per year, and that excludes other harmful greenhouse gases like methane. Without fail that figure is likely to increase as our population continues to grow, with more and more cities developing, and more homes being built.

The average Australian home is about 220 square meters, and with average family members of 5-6 consumes about 6500 KWh of electricity annually; in some parts of Australia as high as 8000 KWh was recorded. On average, a single household emits about 3500 Kg of carbon alone annually. Water heaters, air conditioners and freezers are the top energy consuming appliances according to an Australian home based on a survey,and this has been going on since the industrial boom in the 70’s.

Though Australia does not top the world wide carbon emissions chart like China and the United States (the top 2 carbon emitting nations, which together are responsible for over 40% of the world wide total), Australia still has a lot of grounds to make up to offset its greenhouse gases.

A famous movie line says “anything is possible with technology”, and we are close to living up to that. Various improvements & innovations to existing clean and renewable energy sources are under research, and some under applications already, and this technology has the potential to change the face of the world in a way as life changing as it did when electricity was first discovered. Premier Solar is committed to being Australia’s leading Solar Power & Renewable Energy solutions provider for both homes and medium to large scale commercial solar projects. We are specialists in effective and affordable Solar power System design and use only fully certified installers and product components which pass all government standards and certifications, to enable our customers to access full discounts and rebates, as well enjoy the peace of mind of 25 year warranties from long established manufacturers. is proving to be one of the most important keys in solving our existing carbon problems, and giving us the ability to forever change the effects from every time we flip those electricity switches.

Why Solar?

First and foremost, why not? Solar Energy had been readily available everywhere since the dawn of time. Today’s technology had allowed us to harness its energy and convert it to the form that we mostly need - electricity.

Another reason why is that the early technology of solar panels has laid a strong foundation which has allowed constant innovations to take place over time to make it more efficient and cost friendly. In fact a recent study in Melbourne states that we will see Premier Solar is committed to being Australia’s leading Solar Power & Renewable Energy solutions provider for both homes and medium to large scale commercial solar projects.

systems continuing to become even cheaper in the future, as the new methods and technology allows its energy output to be produced more effectively.

Furthermore, solar power’s applications seem limitless; not only residential but also commercial, and now large scale solar farming projects, primarily because of two reasons. 1st the systems can be easily scaled up or down depending on your needs, and provide an excellent way to decentralise energy production. 2nd is again the cost; even without the government’s assistance in effect, set up costs are reasonable enough and the returns high enough to encourage wide spread interest by investors as well as every day families. Thanks to the Feed in Tariff schemes we have in place in Australia it is generally possible for a well-designed solar system to pay for itself with its efficiency.
