How much does it cost to install solar panels?
The price of solar systems has dropped dramatically over the past few years, making it an increasingly attractive option for homes and businesses.
The upfront cost of your solar PV system is affected by a number of different factors, including:
- government incentives and support schemes available
- installation quality
- type and number of solar panels, which affect the output of your system in kilowatts (kW)
- type and size of inverter (the part of the system that converts the electrical output of your solar panels into AC electricity for use in your home or business)
- type of framing equipment and other system components
- height and accessibility of roof and whether it is tiled, metal or concrete
- after-sales service
As a very rough guide, the total cost of getting a home solar system up and running is between $4500 (for a 5kW system) and $9,500 (for a top-of-the-line 5 kW system).
For businesses, the approximate cost of installing solar ranges from around $20,000 (for a 15kW system) to $120,000 (for a high-capacity 100 kW system).
How much money will I save with solar panels?
The amount of money your household will save on power bills by going solar is affected by a number of factors, including: Your energy consumption and the size of your solar power system – if you use more power than your system is capable of producing, your savings will be reduced. This can be avoided by choosing the right-sized system for your needs.Your feed-in tariff – this is the amount your electricity retailer pays you for any excess power your solar panels generate. Your usage patterns – solar panels can only generate electricity while the sun is shining. This means that households that use a lot of power during the day may attract greater savings than those that consume most of their power at night. However, you will still receive a feed-in tariff for any excess electricity you generate during the day. Where you live – some areas of Australia receive a lot more sunlight than others, so a solar PV system in Brisbane will usually generate more power than one in Hobart. Businesses have a couple of other things to take into account, including the tax implications of any revenue received from feed-in tariffs.
What is a small-scale technology certificate (STC)?
Is solar power safe?
The Australian solar industry is well regulated and safe.Solar panels and inverters sold in this country must comply with a range of standards that maximise safety and reliability. The Clean Energy Council maintains a list of currently approved solar panel modules and inverters.The Clean Energy Council’s Solar Accreditation scheme ensures that the people who design and install solar PV systems are across all the latest safety requirements. Accredited installers are qualified electricians who have undergone additional training and assessment in the installation of solar PV systems. Systems must be installed by a Clean Energy Council accredited installer to be eligible for small-scale technology certificates (STCs). Initiatives such as the Clean Energy Council’s Approved Solar Retailer scheme, which Stralis Energy is, are also ensuring that the Australian solar PV sector stays safe and reliable.
