How it works

How it works

Having a solar power system installed means you can save money on your electricity bills by generating and using your own power.

Put simply, solar panels on your roof convert sunlight into electricity and then an inverter turns it into power you can use in your home during the day. If your home doesn’t use all the power generated, it is sent to the electricity grid so the supply isn’t wasted.
 

Inverters

While generally all solar panels work in the same way, there are different types of inverter systems to consider. It’s good to know the difference, so you can choose the right one for your home.

As hot air blows across water, it causes some of the water to evaporate and absorb the heat, cooling the air as a result. An evaporative air conditioner works the same way.

How installation works

We like to be as transparent as possible, because we know choosing and installing a new solar system can be confusing.

So put your mind at ease, we will clearly outline in your quote's installation conditions, what is and what isn't included in your systems installation. Your quote will be completely itemised and explain in detail, any excess charges, while our installers will explain exactly why they are needed.

If you have any questions about the installation conditions, just give us a call on 136 385, we're happy to chat.

Find out more about the feed-in tariffs and rebates you can receive.

There are two main types of rebates that customers with solar power can be eligible for:

Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs)

STCs are electronic certificates created when eligible solar power systems or solar water heaters are installed. If you buy an EnergyAustralia solar system, we can assign your STCs to us in exchange for a lower upfront cost on your new system.

 

Feed-in Tariffs

A feed-in tariff is a credit customers are paid for any unused electricity that their solar power system sends to the power grid. It is usually a set rate per kilowatt hour and paid as a credit on electricity bills. Australian state governments used to fund feed-in tariff schemes, but they are now closed for new customers. Retailers, like us, do still provide some feed-in tariffs, depending on what state you’re in and the size of your system. We’ll explain everything you need to know about what rebates you’re entitled to when we quote you on a solar power system.
