Those who own real estate in Adelaide may want to consider the benefits of installing solar panels on their property. Not only can this reduce energy costs and improve the green star rating of your investment, it may also boost the value of your property should you decide to sell.
Demand for homes already equipped with solar panels and other sustainable design features is expected to increase over the next few years as electricity prices rise and people become more environmentally aware.
Staying ahead of this trend could help your property stand out from the crowd as an attractive sustainable investment opportunity.
With a heat wave recently affecting many parts of South Australia, including Adelaide, the pressure on traditional energy providers has been evident.
According to the Energy Association of South Australia (ESAA), demand for electricity in South Australia reached record peaks on Monday January 14, with a high of 3,046 MW recorded. These are thought to be the highest levels since January 31 2011, when peak demand sat at 3,385 MW.
