Crush your electricity bills

After many years of electricity price increases in South Australia, prices have started to reduce, which is great for the general public. So why is solar still an option? When your solar system provider takes an interest and analyses your current and future expected home energy usage, it will allow them to engineer a system that can eliminate your energy bill for many years to come. It also allows home owners to start the move away from gas to a full electric eco-efficient house that is powered by sustainable renewable solar and battery power. It’s not just the electricity bill that will be crushed, but also the gas bill at the same time. So in the bigger picture, the current decreases in electricity bills will still be negligible.

Additionally, under South Australia’s feed in tariff program, you’ll receive a price per kWh of up to 21 cents per kilowatt hour (c/kWh) for surplus electricity generated by your system exported to the mains power grid.

Estimated annual electricity savings, [1]:

Estimated savings are dependent on a wide array of aspects which include (but not limited to) quality, orientation, location of panels. Again, this emphasises the importance of getting your home energy bills analysed and a system engineered for your home by experienced qualified engineers.

A rough estimate of what a 6.6kW solar power system can save you on your electricity bill is $500 to $650+ per Quarter.

[1] Estimated South Australia and Adelaide electricity bill savings detailed above based on 38c per kilowatt hour electricity price and 10.0c feed in tariff with 40% consumption of produced electricity for systems without batteries, and 70% to 100% consumption of produced electricity for systems with batteries.

Enjoy power savings day and night by adding a battery
By adding a battery to their solar system, South Australians can save even more money on electricity. At night or during cloudy days, the excess energy stored in batteries allows people to use more of their self-generated power instead of grid power. In fact, adding a battery to a residential solar system can double the amount of self-generated electricity consumption. Not only will solar panels and a battery save you money, they can also add value to your home.

SA solar battery rebates and Virtual Power Plants (VPP)
The South Australian Government is offering a battery rebate of up to $3,000 and the opportunity to participate in a virtual power plant (VPP). When battery owners join a VPP, they let the power company use their battery capacity in exchange for power bill credits.
The Electric Vehicle (EV) revolution is gaining strength in Australia. Are you EV ready?
More and more Australians are buying Electric Vehicles (EV). In fact, over 50% of Australians intend to purchase an EV in the next 5 years! Ensure your house is EV ready by installing a home solar battery. Installing a home battery gives you the flexibility to either sell your stored electricity back to the grid or charge your EV overnight (whichever option works better for you depending on feed-in-tariff, lifestyle, etc.).

SA Emissions vs Other States
Australia’s total greenhouse gas emissions was 535 million tonnes CO2-e in 2017. With 24 million of that total, SA is proud to one of Australia’s least polluting states.
SA’s renewable energy sits at 59.7% of the total energy generated in the state. This follows only TAS, with 99.2% renewable energy. This has been greatly assisted by the fantastic uptake of residential solar. In fact, SA has the highest percentage of houses with solar!

SA Total Net Emissions
State and Territory Greenhouse Gas Inventories 2019 report found that SA produced a total of 24.0 Mt CO2-e. Electricity production and usage accounted for 19% of these emissions.
SA sources over half of their electricity from renewables (wind, solar, residential solar generation). The remaining electricity is generated from gas and diesel. South Australian’s have the greatest proportion of residential solar PV systems per household! This contributes enormously to the reduction is GHG emissions from the energy sector.
