How much money will I save with a solar system?

This depends on:

  • How much energy you use on average
  • When you use that energy
  • The feed-in tariff rate in your State
  • The size of the solar system you install
  • Where you live

So, let’s assume you are paying 30c per kWh right now. If you use all of the solar power you generate, you could easily save $3,000 every year on your electricity bills. That would mean the solar system could start paying for itself in just 2-3 years.

Feel free to chat to one of our representatives about how solar can help reduce your power bills.

How many panels will I need?

A typical family home uses 20kWh of energy a day, so in this instance a 5kW solar system (or about 15-20 panels) would meet most of this house’s needs. A 5kW system measures around 35m2, or 7m x 5m.

We will ensure that your system is installed in a way that best maximises solar energy creation.

Where should I place my panels?

If you have enough space on your house or shed roof, north-facing usually works best in the Southern hemisphere. However, you can still catch enough sunlight on east or west-facing panels depending on the time of day. For example, systems with west-facing panels receive the most sunlight in the late afternoon, while east-facing panels receive more in the morning. Before picking out a space on your roof, make sure there isn’t any shade in the way. Shade can be caused by a taller property nearby, a large tree in front of your house, or even a fast-growing hedge by the side of your property.

How much does a typical solar system cost?

The price of an average 5kW solar system has fallen by over 50% in the last six years, even without government subsidies in place. As a rough guide, the average 5kW system costs around $6,000 after the Federal rebate (but before State rebates and loans*).

*Currently, the Victorian State Government is providing a rebate of up to $1,850 and an interest-free loan of up to $1,850 for all eligible solar systems.

We will also make things easy by stepping you through the process of applying and accessing these incentives.

Myths about solar

Will my electricity be ‘weaker’ with solar?

No, the electricity generated from a solar system is
identical to electricity drawn from the grid. That is
why any excess electricity produced by your solar
system can be ‘sold back’ to the grid.
