There has never been a better time solar up.
With heightening energy costs and a growing increase on demand for energy, there has never been a better time to upgrade your home and lifestyle by embracing the technology of Renewable Energy. Although one of the government rebates has ended, there are still other generous incentives available when choosing to go solar.
Solar Power & Solar Panel Incentives
Solar Credits Rebate - Save up to $3500 on the upfront cost of installing solar panels today
In 2009, the Australian Federal Government introduced the “Solar Credits” scheme to replace the “Solar Homes and Communities Plan”. The Solar Credits scheme was introduced to financially assist homeowners, businesses and community groups that install small-scale solar PV systems by multiplying the number of certificates which are normally generated from installing a solar system. read more»
Solar Feed-in Tariff - Get paid up to 55 cents per kWh for the electricity generated from your solar panels
Once you’ve had your grid connected solar panels installed, any excess energy produced will be fed back into the grid and you will receive a credit on you account. This gets measured by the new bi-directional power meter which gets installed after your panels and inverter are installed. And if you produce more energy that you consume, than you will receive a cheque in the mail. read more»
State Government Rebates & Incentives
Although the solar power rebates are the most popular and have the most generous incentives available, there are still quite a number of state funded schemes designed to assist households and businesses to reduce their electricity usage and financial commitment.
These incentives can vary from state to state and include grants, such as rebates for upgrading your water heating to solar hot water, free energy audits and assessments on your home or business, even grants for wireless energy monitors so that you can be more aware on your hourly energy consumption.
