SOLAR PANEL PRICES
Solar panel prices vary. This depends on the size of your solar system. Some solar power systems for household or commercial use start from the small 1.5kW to large-scale sizes above 50kW. In getting the right system, you need to consider the price, quality and service a solar company or business offers.
You may ask yourself the following questions:
- How much do you want to spend on a solar system?
- What level of service meets your needs?
- How much roof space do you have to install the panels?
- What quality of parts and installation do you expect?
- What size system has your energy retailer approved you for?
These questions will help you come up with an appropriate plan in mind that you can consider talking to with the experts so they can give you more technical advice.
Today, solar panels have become quite cheaper especially with the increasing number of people who are becoming reliant on solar power for their energy needs. The Australian Solar Credits rebate lets Australian energy consumers get more savings through the point-of-sale discounts available upon purchasing solar panels. More panels mean greater financial incentives.
