Solar System Prices

When it comes to the pricing of solar systems, including purchase price, installation costs and running costs, there are a range of factors to consider including:

  • Size of the system - a 1.5kW solar system is likely going to cheaper than a 10kW system.
  • The position of the solar system on your roof, including how easy it is to access your roof.
  • Whether your switchboard needs upgrading to account for your new solar system.
  • Whether you choose to have a solar battery installed or not.
  • How many solar panels you require and the type of panels.

It is therefore suggested that you speak to a solar professional, as they will be able to take into consideration your exact circumstances and provide a quote applicable to you and your needs.

How to choose the best solar system

Before you look at solar brands you need to first choose the best size solar system for your home or business electricity needs. The main points you need to consider include:

  • Where is the best position on your roof to install the panels?
    The best position will be the one that gets the most direct sunlight for the majority of the day. This will maximize the amount of power that you will be able to generate.
  • What size solar system will you need to achieve your goals?
    If your goal is to completely replace your electricity use with renewable power or simply lower your reliance on the grid, you can first have a look at your last electricity bill and work out how much power your household consumes in an average day. Then from there, you will be able to get a better idea of the size of the solar system you will need.
  • What is important to you: installation cost, running cost or green credentials?
    This will be different from person to person but generally people gain back what they have spent on their solar system within 5 years. Others are just happy with knowing they are producing clean energy and reducing their carbon footprint.

Government Solar System Incentives and Rebates

The Queensland and Federal Government have released two main solar schemes to reduce the cost of solar as well as obtain a faster return on your investment. They are the Small-scale Technology Certificates and the Feed-in tariffs.

Solar Feed-in Tariffs

This scheme allows you to receive payments for any additional kWh of solar energy that your system generates that you do not consume. The additional power from your system will be transferred to the shared energy grid and the money generated will come off of your power bill.

Small-scale Technology Certificates

Often referred to as STCs these certificates come in the form of a rebate when installing solar systems. These can be sold on an open market or handed to your solar installer for a decent discount.

How many STCS are you eligible for? How much money is the rebate worth?

The average number of certificates you are eligible for depends on the system size you have chosen. A solar system in QLD is eligible for up to 12 certificates per kW n average with the total number of certificates per KW increasing slightly with each KW increase of the system. Therefore an average household is eligible for up to:

Size of the System Number of Certificates Total Rebate Amount ($39.50 per Certificate)
1kW 12 $474.00
2kW 24 $948.00
3kW 37 $1461.50
4kW 49 $1935.50
5kW 62 $2449.00
6kW 74 $2923.00
7kW 87 $3436.50
8kW 99 $3910.50
9kW 111 $4384.50
10kW 124 $4898.00
