With electricity prices on the rise in the ACT, people in Canberra and across the Territory are turning to solar energy to slash their power bills – or to blow them away altogether. Self-consumption is where the power of solar lies in Canberra installations.
Federal solar rebate/incentive:
Via Australia’s Renewable Energy Target program (RET), the Federal Government subsidises the cost of a solar panel system based on the energy generated. Energy Matters incorporates the value of these solar credits by providing a discount on the solar power system you purchase.
Note: Pending the results of the Renewable Energy Target review, the amount of support may decrease – so it may be wise to lock in the current level of subsidy now.
ACT solar feed in tariff:
You will be paid 6.0c – 7.5c per kilowatt hour for any excess solar energy you produce exported to the mains grid. Bear in mind that for any electricity you generate that you consume; you’ll be saving 18c per kilowatt hour.
