Recently, the University of Wollongong received international praise for winning in the Solar Decathlon in China against 19 other teams from other countries. They called the project, “the Illawara Flame,” which is inspired by the famous Flame Tree. The project is a classic Aussie “fibro” transformed into an energy-neutral home.

They used solar panels, climate control and energy monitoring systems in the design to come up with a technology that can be used in the real world. But despite the award, Wollongong residents seem slow on the uptake when it comes to using solar energy. Based on statistics, only 9 per cent of households adopted Wollongong Solar, compared to the 17 per cent average across Australia.

According to Nick Brass, a solar expert, residents of Wollongong are wary of using solar energy because of the cost and because they think, it is unreliable. Another reason according to Brass is the lack of knowledge on solar technology. Residents may have heard many claims that made them wary of investing in solar power. However, with the continued increase in energy bills, residents may begin to see solar power in a new light. Nick Brass believes that Wollongong may see a boom in solar adoption in the coming months. They probably now understand how much money they can save with solar power even with the high initial costs. Wollongong Solar Rebates offered by the government also give people another reason to invest in solar energy.

The Illawara Flame may just be the boost that Wollongong needs to appreciate solar power more. With the international praise, people are also becoming more interested in the technology, and this in turn may boost the sales of solar panels. They see important people in the city using the technology. If you are planning to adopt solar power into your home as well, it is best to begin searching for free solar quotes Wollongong so you can determine your budget as early as now.
