Solar systems are great value for home owners and business as they are amongst the most profitable investments you can make.
Solar system prices have fallen steadily over the last few years and with the sharp increases in power prices in South Australia the return on investment from solar systems in has increased substantially.
When I wrote the comments on the front page of our website I thought solar systems had become as cheap as they ever would. However, now we are selling them even cheaper notwithstanding that we now get a smaller up front solar rebate.
For customers with an un-shaded solar system it is likely now that the return will be around 20% to 25% per annum. This far outperforms the average returns on the share market and is about 5 times better than the return you get from money in the bank.
