Electricity prices have been skyrocketing in New South Wales, but many people in Sydney and across the state have made a wise choice by turning to solar panels to burn a hole in their power bill. As well as Sin ydney, people taking part in the solar power NSW revolution live in places such as the South Coast, Wollongong, Newcastle, the North Coast, New England, the Northern Tablelands, the Southern Tablelands, the Riverina and the West of the state.
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 Solar Credits value by providing a discount at the point of sale. The amount of discount is based on the output of the system you purchase.
However, the future of this subsidy is now uncertain as the RET is being reviewed – make the switch to solar now and lock in the current generous incentive level.
NSW solar feed in tariff (FiT):
You will generally be paid up to 12c per kilowatt hour for any surplus electricity you generate that can be fed back into the grid. The amount varies between electricity retailers.
One of New South Wales’ best investments
An investment in a solar power system can provide better returns than many other investments; for example, a system installed in Sydney has an estimated average internal rate of return of 18.9% according to Energy Matters’ Australian Solar Index.
NSW electricity bills have risen by:
Between June 2007 and June 2012; households in Sydney were hit with a 79% increase in the price of power and the story was similar elsewhere in the state. Since then, a further 11.8% – 20.6% increase occurred up to July 2013; and households will need to dig a little deeper during the 2013/14 financial year as well.
Why switch to solar in NSW:
New South Wales has Australia’s highest daytime electricity prices. Couple this with Energy Matters’ lowest ever prices on world-leading brands and NOW is the best time to install solar and reap the benefits of a substantially reduced electricity bill.
Further solar power NSW details:
Did you know the day rate for electricity in NSW is above 35 cents per kilowatt hour, which means installing a solar power system can make a sizable difference to the balance on your bill. In fact, a 5W system on a north facing roof could save you more than $2,500 per year*.
