Electricity prices may be on the rise, but Tasmanian solar users are wiping out their electricity bills and in some cases even earning a small income through installing solar panels.

Tasmanian solar feed in tariff:

You will be paid a rate of 6.671c per kilowatt hour for any excess solar energy you produce that can be fed back into the grid – remember, the savings you’ll make for the electricity you don’t consume will be substantially higher per kilowatt hour.

Federal solar rebate/incentive:

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 power system you purchase. The amount of discount is dependent on the output of the system purchased.

NOTE: The Renewable Energy Target is being reviewed. The results of the review could see the amount of support being slashed – so if you’re considering going solar, the best time to do so may be right now.

Tasmanian Energy Efficiency Loan Scheme (TEELS)

The Tasmanian government in conjunction with Aurora Energy has announced the Tasmanian Energy Efficiency Loan Scheme (TEELS) to help grow the states solar use and help to make investing in renewable energy even cheaper.

Tasmanian solar: Not an expense – an investment

So much of what we buy today we make a loss on – but not so with solar. In fact, an average system installed in Hobart or Launceston can provide an internal rate of return of between 9.5% and 11% according to Australian Solar Index estimates.

Electricity bills in Tasmania have risen by:

Tasmanian electricity prices jumped 12% between 2012 and July 2013. Tasmania’s Opposition says households started paying a further 3% more from July 1, 2013.
