If you are a landlord of a rental property, you may well be thinking what incentive you have to provide solar power and related facilities for your rental property.
Well, If we take the current Core Logic property data for [Alice Springs](https://www.yourinvestmentpropertymag.com.au/top-suburbs/nt-0870-alice-springs.aspx), [Larapinta](https://www.yourinvestmentpropertymag.com.au/top-suburbs/nt-0870-larapinta.aspx), [The Gap](https://www.yourinvestmentpropertymag.com.au/top-suburbs/nt-0870-the-gap.aspx) and [East Side](https://www.yourinvestmentpropertymag.com.au/top-suburbs/nt-0870-east-side.aspx) as examples, Landlords must wait between 64 and 104 to have a vacated rental filled. Having an in-demand rental property can place landlords’ porperties on the bottom 50% of those averages, potentially saving landlords thousands of dollars in lost rental income.
Moreover, Renters will choose solar powered properties for the benefits they provide in reductions in power bills and to make a choice that positively effects the environment.
You can also access a Smart Energy Grant <- [LINKED] to recoup some of the cost and negotiate with your tenants through your agent to have solar installed on your property.
The cherry on top of it all is that you will be contributing to a new future of renewable energy in Central Australia!
