There are various ways to save money on solar panels in Adelaide, from government rebates to feed-in tariffs allowing households and commercial properties to sell excess energy to electricity companies.
Who is eligible for feed-in tariffs?
Any property that installs solar PV panels in Australia and consumes less than 160 MWh of electricity per year is eligible to participate in solar feed-in tariffs and start earning money for electricity exported to local and national power grids. With the typical household using less than 10 MWh per annum, this means only larger commercial premises may be unable to participate.
The type of meter your property uses will also determine your eligibility, with import/export meters being required for delivery of electricity from homes to power grids.
Choosing a supplier
Not all solar energy suppliers provide power systems that are suitable for use with feed-in tariffs, making this one of many questions you should ask companies when comparing solar packages for your home. These may include the range of products available, the size of deposit required for solar installation and whether the company is South Australian owned.
