Solar Electricity in Australia
The New Solar Power Rebates from June 2009
Solar Credits To Replace Solar Rebate In Australia…
Some of the changes include:
- Minimum 1.5 kilowatt System
- No Income Limit
Photovoltaic Solar Power systems
This $8,000 rebate scheme, with a household income threshold of under $100,000, has now finished on 9th June 2009
Electric Boosted Roof Based Solar Panel Hot water System
An example of the pricing for the above system was $1,595 fully installed, after rebates, from Origin Energy.
Another example is a price of $500 PLUS Installation in my local newspaper in May 2009.
Stand alone Heat Pump Hot Water System
An example of the pricing for a system similar to the above, but a different Brand, was:
$2,749 for the unit, plus
$ 352 for installation,
$1,188 for the REC’s rebate, and less
$1,600 for the Federal Solar Hot Water Rebate.
This left the Net cost to me, in April 2009, of:
$312.00. This is an actual cost, after serious shopping around.
I have seen them quoted for about $2,500 after rebates.
I received all rebates into my bank account within 10 weeks.
