How can I learn more about solar?

You are welcome to submit an inquiry with us via the contact page. Alternatively if you want to carry out independent research a good site for you to visit would be https://www.solarquotes.com.au. Solar Quotes was developed by an Australian Electrical Engineer known as Finn Peacock. This website is the best source of information you will find on the internet. There are thousands of reviews and discussions about all things solar.
 

How does the solar financial incentive work?

“Under the Renewable Energy Target, if you have installed an eligible small-scale renewable energy system within the past 12 months you may be eligible to create small-scale technology certificates.

The number of small-scale technology certificates that can be created per system is based on geographical location, installation date, and the amount of electricity in megawatt hours (MWh) the system generates or displaces over the course of its deemed generation period.

Owners of eligible systems may be eligible to receive either an upfront discount off the total cost of their system, or a quantity of small-scale technology certificates which can be created and sold following installation to recoup some of the cost” (Clean Energy Regulator 2019).

As a rough guide, the financial incentive would be about $620/kW of Solar Panels installed. The amount of financial incentive you are entitled to for a 10kW Solar System would be approximately $6,200.
 

are our installers clean energy council approved?

Certainly! We need to use Clean Energy Council approved installers so that we can qualify your solar system for the government rebate. We use a handful of installers and if you want the specific license details of the installer we would use for your job just ask us and we will provide this to you.
 

who is the best energy retailer?

This is case-by-case dependent however, for non-solar customers Red Energy and Origin Energy seem to be quite good. For solar customers the best energy providers are Origin Energy and AGL. These companies will provide you with a 20c/kWh Feed in Tariff which will essentially eliminate your power bill all together if you install enough panels. If you have any questions please contact us.

what about commercial solar?

If you are considering installing solar for your business we are definitely the right people to get into contact with. We have experienced working internally and externally on the projects that we deliver for our business customers. When we do a solar feasibility analysis for your business we actually use the historical energy use data that your energy retailer uses to bill you with. This way we can model exactly how your business uses energy and base our solar design on true usage. This takes the guess work out and provides a detailed report that takes several factors into consideration. If this interests you contact us for a free solar feasibility report.

I’m a developer and want to invest into solar?

There are several options available to you; power your properties with solar, install solar onto a property you own and then on-sell the electricity to the renter(s) or, build a solar farm and sell the electricity you generate to an energy retailer through a Power Purchase Agreement. If you want to know how to do this please get into contact with us.
