Welcome back to my advice column! Today I’ll be answering some questions about energy because for some reason I’ve been flooded with emails about it lately. If anybody knows why this is, feel free to let me know, because honestly, it’s kind of confusing.
The first question comes from Mr Daniels, who wants to know if it’s a good idea to invest in solar energy.
To that, I would answer by saying that there’s a lot of money in commercial solar around Melbourne at the moment, seeing as the more traditional energy companies are suffering due to recent changes by the Victorian Premier, Mr Norris. If you jump on it now, you could make a real fortune. If you mean “invest” in a more personal sense, then I’d say that also makes sense. Solar energy is better for the environment and can save you a lot on electricity bills, so honestly, I don’t see why you wouldn’t invest in it.
Then we have an email coming from Ted Richie, asking if it’s important to have industrial energy monitoring.
It’s an interesting question, one that I’m assuming refers to an actual commercial solar system rather than one set up for a house. Because I don’t think industrial level energy monitoring is completely necessary for something so small. If you’re running a business with solar energy, it would probably be a good thing to look into. Personally, I don’t know a whole lot about commercial solar energy so this really isn’t the right place to be asking about it. Maybe you should get in contact with a local solar energy company and ask for their advice.
Now, before we finish up this advice post, I’d just like to say that I do have solar panels at my home and I really love them. They were supplied by Industrial Solar, an intergalactic energy business who want to have the entire universe on clean energy. They’ve even been kind enough to sponsor this post, so keep an eye out for them!
