Don't let your Christmas lights increase your power bills. Most retailers now sell solar powered Christmas decorations that charge during the day and automatically light up when the sun goes down.

Whether you’ve switched to solar or not, your air conditioning will make up a large part of your energy usage.

In summer, ensure your air conditioning is no more than 8 degrees below the outdoor temperature. Each degree Celsius you’re under the outside temperature, your air conditioner is using more power.

If you have solar panels on your roof, be sure to remove any overhanging branches or debris that might affect the performance of your solar panels.

Energy Tip...
Stagger the use of your appliances to make the most of the energy from your solar panels. For example, wait until your dishwasher has completed its cycle before turning on the washing machine.

If both machines were to run at the same time, the electricity usage may exceed the amount of solar power generated, which in turn could cost you more money.

By staggering your usage and not overloading your electricity consumption, you’ll be able to use more of your solar electricity, therefore offsetting and saving more.

To get the maximum benefit from your solar system aim to use as much of that solar generated energy while the sun is shining. Any excess energy you generate can be exported back to the grid and you will receive a Feed-in Tariff.

It is OK if the sun doesn't always shine. We all have our bad days.

Today is R U OK? Day, a national day of action dedicated to reminding us all to take the time to ask someone "are you ok?" What better time to reach out to a family member, friend or workmate.

To find out more about R U OK Day visit https://www.ruok.org.au/ and start the conversation.

Understanding the peak solar generation times of the day can help you consume your solar energy more wisely. Monitoring shows that the greatest amount of solar generation occurs between 7.00am and 5.00pm, when most businesses are operational.

Installing a solar system at your workplace can assist with reducing power bills and protect businesses from unexpected price rises and blackouts.
