What is a Government Rebate?

Australia is fast becoming a solar powered country, on its mission to facilitate for forcasted rooftop Solar installations, comes the famous Australian federal rebates. These federal ‘STC Schemes’ are fundamentally discounts off the final cost of a solar system installation. The subsidy can be worth up to approximately $550 per kW of installed solar panels, but this figure is dependent on each state.

Your Energy Partner takes the trouble off of clients in applying for all applicable rebates and sees through the application process throughout grant.

Solar System Components

Solar Panel

Solar Panels (also known as PV panels) are the most vital of all the solar power components. Residential solar panels consist of 60 solar cells on average, while most commercial solar panels contain 72 solar cells. Solar panels are what collect and convert the light from the sun into electrical energy.

The Inverter

Solar Panels generate Direct Current (DC) Electricity but almost everything used in a household uses Alternating Current (AC) Electricity. This is why solar systems require an inverter. Inverts are mounted on the house and are what converts DC electricity to useable AC electrcity.

Battery

There are many ways that a solar battery can improve the economics of solar panels. Batteries are becoming more cost effective over time. For homeowners that find themselves consuming energy most at night when their Solar PV System isn’t producing power – a storage solution might be useful. Solar batteries have been considered to be expensive, but Australia now subsidieses batteries and these are now more affordable.

What is a Feed-in Tarrif & How Does It Work?

A Feed-in Tariff is a billing mechanism that utility companies use to pay a homeowner back for their excess solar energy that goes back into the grid. Feed-in Tariff rates depend on each state in Australia, but how it works is generally the same. Excess unused energy goes back into the grid and FiT allows homeowners to ‘sell’ their energy back into the grid in exchange for credit that can later be used to pay for energy consumption.
