Melbourne, Australia, June 16, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Solarflow, a Melbourne-based water tank and solar hot water solutions company, commenced a campaign to stress that home energy assessment programs and rebates for water tanks and hot solar systems remain in place despite cutbacks.
Many consumers are unaware that, despite the recent cutting of favourable energy saving and rebate programs on a state and federal level, many incentives remain in place to reward those who want to invest in renewable energy and low emissions technologies.
Tim Prohasky of Solarflow wants to point out that program participants can still receive up to to $1,500 on a rain water tank connected to a toilet and washing machines, as well as up to $3,000 on large capacity solar hot water system. In fact, the authorities embrace solar hot water systems, as, today, they still are the most economical way to reduce carbon footprint and energy bills, all at the same time.
Investing in quality rainwater tanks, climate-friendly hot water systems, water efficient washing machines, and dual flush toilets are only a few of the home improvements recommended to make homes and businesses more water and energy efficient. They are upgrades that can be arranged any time of year, although water tanks are best installed during the colder months. Given the hot climate and long drought that Australia is experiencing, these measures are so important in the fight to conserve our precious resources.
Winter is a great time to install water tanks
as it allows consumers to fill the tank before the long, hot summer. With a full tank of water, home owners can still water their lawn, despite the continuing chronic water shortages resulting from drought, and stage 3 water restrictions.
As part of their new awareness and campaign, Solarflow will be offering complimentary incentives to the existing state and federal rebates so now is a great time to make those changes. Tim Prohasky of Solarflow explains the need for incentives in this business, "people realise the benefits of making such changes to their home, Australians are very conscious of the effects global warming with floods in the North and drought in the South. Despite the long term financial benefits, it is the initial cost of installation that puts people off or postpones them."
Solarflow, an eco-conscious water tank and solar hot water solutions specialist wants to highlight these existing Government rebates for the entire month of July by offering a free Davey Pressure Pump with any steel tank, or an attractive discount on a Davey Rainbank. This is the prime time to install a rainwater tank before the long Australian summer hits.
Retro fitting a water tank can range from setting up a simple steel or plastic reservoir for catching water to irrigate your garden, to installing a sophisticated system that recirculates water through UV filters. There are many superb rain water tank and solar hot water solutions, but only an experienced specialist can help you find the system that fits your needs and budget.
