Solar Power Brisbane

Lower your electricity bill

Solar power is one of the most efficient and cost-effective ways to generate power. Excess power generated from the solar panels can now be kept in battery storage for later use on cloudy days instead of being fed back into the power grid. This ensures that your home or business has power at all times.

Benefits of Solar Power

  • Abundance of renewable energy: If you live in sunny Queensland you know that we have an abundance of sunshine. If you were to have solar panels installed on your roof the electricity you would generate from the sun would produce more electricity than you would be able to use.
  • Cost effective: Due to your power coming directly from the sun and less from your provider you can say goodbye to the exorbitant power prices from being solely provided electricity by the grid. This means more money back into your pocket.
  • Green Energy: Converting your home to solar reduces the size of your carbon footprint dramatically.

Government Solar Rebates and Incentives

These rebates and incentives are to help people get a return on their initial investment when converting their home to solar. The current incentives available for homeowners are:

Solar Feed-in Tariffs

This scheme is meant for people that produce more energy than their home can consume. You can have your additional power transferred into the shared energy grid and for every kWh you give into the grid you recieve money back. Typically in the form of money off your next bill.

Small-scale Technology Certificates

This particular scheme is federal and provides people installing solar panels with a certificate that can be used to give a discount on your new system. The amount given in the certificate will depend entirely on the size of your new system.

Solar Power Pricing

The price for a new solar PV powered system in Brisbane can be between $3,000 and $13,000 depending on the size you wish to go. Queensland as a whole has the cheapest average price for solar system installation than any other state. Below is a table that outlines the price difference.

Solar Power

The solar power that your home or business will need is dependant on your needs and the space available in or to install the solar system. It is better to have some solar panels than none although going to the extreme on either side is not recommended. Stick to what you can afford and what will benefit your home or business the most.

Solar Power Requirements

There are essentially three main components required to generate solar power in your home.

  • solar panels which convert the suns' energy into electrical energy (DC)
  • solar panel racking systems which attach the solar panels to the roof
  • solar power inverter which converts the DC electrical energy to AC for use in your home and, if required, to feed back into the main electricity network.
