How much does it cost to install a solar system?
Solar products have become more affordable for everyday homes and businesses in Australia over the last few years, making it a popular choice to reduce electricity bills in a renewable way.
The upfront cost to install a solar system is dependent on several factors:
• Government incentives available
• Quality of materials
• Qualification of installers
• Type and number of solar panels
• Type and size of inverter
• Type of structural equipment required
• Height, accessibility and material of roof
How much money will I save with a solar system?
The amount of money your household or business will save on power bills is dependent on a range of factors:
• How much energy you consume
• The size of your solar system
• Feed-in tariff (the amount your electricity retailer pays you for excess power your solar systems generates)
• Your usage patterns – whether you’re using most of your power during sunlight hours, or at night
• Where you live as some areas in Australia receive more sunlight than others
Are there government subsidies available?
Small-scale Technology Certificates (STC’s) are offered by the Australian government to reduce the upfront cost of installing solar systems. The value of the STC offered is dependent on the size of your solar system and your location.
As certified designers and installers of the Clean Energy Council, Macarthur Energy customers are eligible for STC incentives.
What is a solar feed-in tariff?
The amount your energy retailer pays you for any excess electricity that your solar panels produce is known as a feed-in tariff. The excess energy that you do not use is fed back into the electricity network (the grid).
