Gone are the days when entertainment meant reading a book or going outside – these days we have more electronic devices than Australians have solar panels on their roof – considering 1.64 million of us have solar panels – that’s a lot of electronic devices.
If you’re like me, the first thing you do when you get home is charge your smartphone, turn on the air conditioner, preheat the oven, and often turn on the dishwasher or throw a load into the washing machine.
Meanwhile, kid A is in their room on a gaming console and charging their smartphone, kid B is on their tablet trying to decide on a snack with the fridge door wide open while your other half is on their laptop while watching the TV.
Sound familiar? These days we all have devices that need to be plugged in at any given time. Not to mention the gaming consoles and TVs. Your home entertainment is costing you more than you think.
The Australian Multi-Screen Report (Regional TAM, OzTAM and Nielsen) found that there are 6.4 screens per Australian household (includes TVs and tablets) and with the average Australian watching 2 hours and 39 minutes of TV a day, we are spending more time plugged in than ever.
Combined with the fridge, extra freezer, clothes dryer, washing machine, dishwasher and various smaller appliances, that we use every single day – your electricity bill can soon be through the roof.
As you can see, all your appliances can add up – and rather quickly. But, what can you do?
Investing in a smart solar battery system, like Reposit means you can use energy when you want and save money on your power bill.
So how does it work? A smart solar battery will help keep your household comfortable by managing your household energy consumption and lowering your power bill. It works with your solar panels, to predict how much electricity your panels will create, and knows when to store this in your battery to lower your power bills.
This means you can plug in your devices when you want, without the high cost. Your smart battery will know when you want to use your devices and appliances and reduce your need to buy electricity when it’s expensive, saving your solar-generated electricity for when you need it most.
