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 even to blow them away altogether. Self-consumption is where the power lies in Canberra solar 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. Thus, 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. It may be wise to lock in the current level of subsidy now.

ACT solar feed in tariff:

The retailer will pay  6.0c – 7.5c /kWh for any excess solar energy you produce that exports to the grid. Bear in mind that for any electricity you generate that you consume, you’ll be saving 18c/kWh.
