Solar Power

How much can I expect to save now?

With a well designed system, it is possible to never have to pay electricity bills again. Over a 25 year period, solar could save you $75,000 in electricity costs.

Why is solar better than other renewable energy?

Solar is a proven performer, economical and long lasting. We have an infinite supply of sunshine at our disposal, especially here in Australia. Because solar systems have no moving parts, solar modules are extremely reliable, lasting several decades.

What will I get out of installing solar panel systems?

As well as saving money on your electricity expenses, you will be helping the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. This will help contribute towards the slowing of climate change and ensure that our planet is sustainable for future generations.

Savings & STC/REC’s

The value of STC’s change according to market conditions. So if the value of an STC increases you can retire your STCs and if the spot prices are low you can wait for the value to increase.

For PV systems the federal government funded financial incentives available are as follows:
• Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs)
• Small scale Technology Certificates (STCCs)
• Feed‐in tariffs (grid connections)

Australian Government cash rebates are no longer available for solar panels. RECs are the only financial incentive offered by the government and are included in the cost of your system. The Number of RECs assigned to a solar system depends on the size and location of the system.
A feed-in-tariff is a rate paid or credited to a system owner for electricity fed back into the power grid from a designated renewable electricity generation source.
Electricity retailers are required to pay at least $0.60 per KWH produced by the solar panels installed before various date. If it is fed to the grid, which is at a premium compared what the electricity retailers sell their conventional electricity (typically $0.20 per KWH). This higher tariff is called the premium feed‐in tariff.
Current feed-in tariffs now vary from zone + 8 cents/KWH.

There are currently two major forms of assistance given for solar power systems by the Australian government. These are Small scale Technology Certificates (STC’s) and Feed-in Tariff incentives.
STC’s are a tradeable commodity attached to eligible installations of renewable energy systems (including solar panels, solar water heaters and heat pumps). Under the Federal Government’s Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES), when you install an eligible system, you may claim a set number of these STCs.

Cost's & Extra Cost's

As panel/inverter needs to deliver to site, if the site is far from central location/city there may be some delivery costs. And also if installers have to travel, there will be some more costs.

Flat roofs require a pitch frame to tilt the solar panels to provide best output. Very steep roofs will need safety rails while installing panels. This may slightly alter costs.

Solar Panels & Inverters

The warranty period differs according to the brand but, most of the panels have a warranty period of 25 years. The warranty often provides 5 to 10 years coverage for defects in the manufacture of the product.

Yes! The warranty period differs according to the brand but most solar panels have a warranty period of 25 years. The warranty often provides 5 to 10 years coverage for defects in the manufacture of the product.

Warranty cover varies from supplier to supplier. However there are minimum requirement for CEC approvals and rebate claims.

Solar Power Installation

You can install a solar system anywhere you need a clean and renewable energy.

When you install a solar system, it is a requirement that a smart meter be installed.

Your solar system will require basic maintenance to ensure optimum efficiency and output.
