Electricity prices are increasing and from Melbourne to Moe and beyond, Victorians are looking to burn a hole in their electricity bills. To do this, they’re creating their own energy through the power of the sun. Solar power Melbourne style is the new fashion. You can even get black solar panels these days!

Federal solar rebate/incentive:

Through the Renewable Energy Target scheme (RET), the Federal Government subsidises the cost of solar power systems. Energy Matters incorporates the value of these solar credits by providing a discount on the solar panel system you purchase. The amount of discount depends on the output of the system purchased.

However, it’s important to understand that the Renewable Energy Target is currently under review. Pending outcome of the review, the amount of support could decrease. Based on that,  now is a great time to lock in the incentives.

Victoria solar feed in tariff (FiT):

You will receive at least 7 cents per kWh surplus power produced that exports into the grid. Some retailers may offer more.

Solar savings – high return investment

A penny saved is a penny earned they say. And solar can save you much more than that. That makes it one of Australia’s best investments in terms of internal rate of return.

Electricity bills in Victoria have risen

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.
