Electricity prices are increasing and from Melbourne to Moe and beyond, Victorians are looking to burn a hole in their electricity bills by creating their own energy through the power of the sun.
Through the Renewable Energy Target scheme (RET), the Federal Government subsidises the cost of solar power systems according to the energy generated. Energy Matters incorporates the value of these solar credits by providing a discount on the solar panel system you purchase. The amount of discount is dependent on the output of the system purchased.
However, it's important to understand with the Renewable Energy Target currently under review; pending outcome of the review, the amount of support could decrease - so now is a great time to lock in the incentives.
You will receive 8 cents per kilowatt hour surplus power produced that is exported into the grid.
A penny saved is a penny earned they say - and solar can save you much more than that; making it one of Australia's best investments in terms of internal rate of return.
Across Victoria's five distribution areas and depending on the retailer, electricity prices jumped between 8.2 and 14.8% over the 2012/2013 financial year. Prior to that, between June 2007 and June 2012, the price of electricity in Melbourne increased by 84%.
Looking ahead, there's more pain at the power point, with electricity bills expected to increase by a further 21 per cent, or about $300 a year.
Victorians have experienced unprecedented electricity price rises in recent history, which is set to continue for the foreseeable future.
