Energy Queensland Limited (EQL) awards Pedley’s Electrical

It’s now 2018, and the future for solar energy in Queensland remains bright. With Brisbane solar panel installs on the rise again, and electricity prices at an all time high, consumers are left with little choices but to switch energy retailers or adopt solar power technology.

To assist the sunshine states residents and business owners in 2018, the Queensland Government has partnered with Energy Queensland Limited (EQL) to have grid connect solar systems installed on public housing. Agriculture Minister and Member for Rockhampton Bill Byrne announced in September that eligible public housing tenants in Rockhampton and Cairns would be given the opportunity to participate in the voluntary trial.

The SunnySavers solar photovoltaic (PV) system trial is an innovative and sustainable approach to providing low cost energy to vulnerable and financially disadvantaged residents within remote Queensland cities. The trials are being conducted in partnership between the Department of Housing and Public Works and the Department of Natural Resources, Mines and Energy.

Solar Power Purchase Agreement

The SunnySavers solar solution trial is targeted at making solar power affordable and sustainable for all Queensland residents. The system is provided under a Solar Power Purchase Agreement (SPPA) and is installed with minimal intrusions for residents. The PV system is a combination of rooftop solar panels and a nominal 4kW inverter. The SPPA is a cost efficient plan to ensure there are no upfront costs for the resident and continual fixed tarriffs approximately half of typical grid power.

The SunnySavers trial was rolled out in Cairns and Rockhampton in September 2017. The first phase of rooftop solar installations were released in 3 discrete packages of works catering for up to 90 households. Energy Queensland Limited awarded Brisbane solar company Pedley’s Electrical Service the scope for the installation of grid connect solar power systems for 29 households in Rockhampton.

The Author

I took an interest in the Australian energy sector close to ten years ago and since then have monitored the trends, technologies and direction of the Australian Energy Market. I was drawn to the Australian solar market in 2008 and since then have worked heavily in the field. I am partnered with national and international solar energy companies, from manufacturers of solar panel and inverter technology, online software developers that introduce tools to quote, monitor and manage solar power systems and media organisations who like myself, closely monitor the solar and renewable energy sector.
