Federal solar rebate/incentive:
Renewable energy certificates are available with solar power systems installed in Darwin and elsewhere in the Territory. Their value varies with market conditions and the total amount is also based on how much your solar panel system can produce. Rather than have to ‘cash in’ these certificates yourself and risk poor returns, Energy Matters offers a set value as a point of sale discount.
Northern Territory Feed In Tariff:
The Northern Territory feed in tariff is 1-for-1; meaning whatever you pay for electricity is what you’ll receive for your generation. This translates to a very healthy return on your solar investment. For example, a good quality 5kW system installed in Darwin can generate in excess of $1,700 in financial benefit annually, based on based on 25c per kilowatt hour electricity price and 25c feed in tariff with 50% feed in rate.
