Government so­lar re­bates still avail­able

Tweed Daily News - - NEWS | WELCOME -

IF you’re con­sid­er­ing so­lar, the time to act is now. Un­der the fed­eral government’s Re­new­able En­ergy Tar­get scheme, the re­bate is set to de­crease by ap­prox­i­mately $400, based on a 6.6 kw sys­tem on De­cem­ber 31st. That’s a se­ri­ous sav­ing not to be sneezed at. Un­der­stand­ing the fed­eral STC re­bate

The fed­eral government cur­rently of­fers a fi­nan­cial in­cen­tive de­signed to en­cour­age Aus­tralian homes, busi­nesses and com­mu­nity groups to take up so­lar in a bid to meet our re­new­able en­ergy tar­get by 2030. This in­cen­tive comes in the form of an STC (small scale tech­nol­ogy cer­tifi­cate) which is ap­plied di­rectly to the so­lar sys­tem at the time of in­stal­la­tion. You do not need to pay up front or claim any money back as the in­cen­tive is built in to your up­front cost of your so­lar sys­tem.

The cur­rent STC cal­cu­la­tion will re­duce again at the end of the year and will do so each year un­til it is phased out in 2030, so if you’ve been con­sid­er­ing so­lar, now is the time to act.

Make the switch with SAE Group SAE Group have yet an­other com­pelling of­fer that will make the switch to pow­er­ing your home with smarter, cleaner en­ergy easy for you. This high qual­ity 5.5kw so­lar bun­dle com­prises of the 5kw Fro­nius smart en­ergy in­verter, and 20 x 275-watt Seraphim pan­els for $5652.00.

This 5.5kw sys­tem will gen­er­ate an av­er­age of 23kw of power each day, based on the Clean En­ergy Coun­cil’s rec­om­men­da­tion of the av­er­age hours of 4.2 hours. Let’s say you self-con­sume 50% of the elec­tric­ity you gen­er­ate free from the sun. Based on the av­er­age out­put, that’s 11.5 kw each day. Ap­ply­ing to­day’s av­er­age elec­tric­ity tar­iff of 28c/kw, you stand to make a sav­ing of $3.22 each day. That might not seem much but over the course of a year that’s a mas­sive $1,175.00 back in your pocket.

If you are ex­port­ing the re­main­ing 50% at an av­er­age so­lar feed in tar­iff, de­pen­dent on so­lar re­tailer, of 12 cents per kw, that’s an­other sav­ing of $1.38 cents per day, or a fur­ther $503.00 a year you’ll save in elec­tric­ity costs. That’s a whop­ping to­tal of $1678.00 per year in sav­ings, and the pos­si­bil­ity to re­coup the cost of a 5.5 kw so­lar sys­tem in un­der four years, and you’ve still got years of so­lar sav­ings ahead of you.
