Electric Boosted Roof Based Solar Panel Hot water System

Dux Sun Pro 315L Electric Boosted Solar Hot Water

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

Dux Airoheat Heat Pump 250 litres

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.
