Why you should go solar now
In South Australia, grid-connect solar for your home is a no-brainer. Rising retail electricity prices continue to be a hotly contested political issue, and South Australia continues to have the most expensive retail electricity bills in the country (source).
Buying solar panels allows you to generate your own electricity from the sun. This drastically reduces the energy you need from the grid, thus slashing your electricity bills.
And if you produce more power than you need — as people typically do during the day — you can sell that output back to the grid. This is called "export" and you can build up credits on your bill based on the feed-in tariffs offered by your utility.
There’s another key factor that makes solar so attractive right now: the generous incentive on offer from the Commonwealth, known as Small-Scale Technology Certificates (STC). The way the STC operates is pretty complex (see here for more details) but in short, you are paid upfront for the power that you generate and in turn the carbon you off set over the life of the system. We will quote you an "out of pocket price"; this is the price of the system after the STC rebate has been applied. Just be aware that the government reduces the STC every year, so the sooner you go solar the more money you stand to save.
All these factors mean that at present, solar installations in South Australia pay for themselves in just 3–4 years. That’s an amazing return on investment that you’d be hard-pressed to find anywhere else.
The huge financial savings explain why over 330,000 South Australian families have already installed solar on their home. That number represents 40.8% of all households in the state!
