Michael from Berwick, Victoria installed his 5kW solar system as part of the rebate and is reaping the fantastic rewards of using the sun to power the home. On January 14 2019, his solar system generated enough solar to power the home during the day and in the evening only imported 3kWh from the grid.
If Michael didn’t have solar, he could have been charged up to $15.35* for the day’s usage.
Because Michael had solar, he was only charged $1.39* for the day’s usage. The rest is free.
By installing with the rebate, Michael claimed the $2,225 rebate on his installation, practically halving his payback period of the system, and with his energy management software, Michael can monitor the system throughout the day, to give him the information he needs to minimise energy bills, and you can too.
