It’s a bright sunny day here in Brisbane, Queensland. The sky is clear and a cool, oceanic breeze is whirling through the serene trees. But as any keen Queenslander or Aussie can tell, this weather could change in a snap, and it’s better to prepare for any season.

If you’re considering going solar, it’s crucial that you understand the reason for installing it. While most Aussies install solar panels to beat the rising electricity prices that are currently at an all-time high, solar power is a great hedge against blackouts in stormy weather.

Indeed, the benefits of installing a solar photovoltaic (PV) system by an Australian home or business are huge. In fact, this is considered the number one driving force behind Aussies’ massive switch to solar and battery storage.

When it comes to solar energy, it’s all good news—the prices of solar panels have dropped, technology is advanced and the panels are incredibly durable even in the most extreme weather conditions.

By now you must be wondering if solar could ever survive the severe Australian storms and be efficient on the cold snowy days. Well guess what, solar is used in Iceland and around the New South Wales Snowy Mountains.

Solar panels are also installed on rooftops in deserts and other extremely hot areas including Tarcoola in South Australia, known to have scorching heat. Solar is a good investment and when you’re looking for the best deals in the market, trust Storm Assist to help you find it.
