Reduce your bills with solar.
We’ve been installing solar in the Northern Rivers for more than a decade.
Thanks to systems becoming more reliable, affordable and easier to install during this time, more than 1 in 5 Australian households now have solar panels on their roof. In Northern NSW the take up is even greater. That is a lot of people benefitting from solar power. And you could too.
At Nickel we’re with our customers every step of the way – from tailored solutions and expert installation, all the way through to servicing and maintenance.
We can help you save.

Hear from our customers
“We’ve just had Nickel Energy install our rooftop solar system and couldn’t be happier. We had a couple of spivvy companies give us quotes based on our electricity bill. Both tried to sell us a system that generated 100% of our daily usage, meaning a vastly more expensive system than we could afford.
Nickel Energy looked at our bill, told us that we only needed a system big enough to generate the power we would use during the day (as you can’t generate power at night so we’d have to buy grid power at night) and gave us a really good price.”

“Summerland Christian College is delighted with its solar power system, especially in this era of rising power prices. It has been a blessing to have the system installed and we appreciate the excellent service and efficiency of Nickel Energy in establishing this asset under the Federal Government’s National Solar Schools Program.”

Frequently asked questions
What are feed-in tariffs?
If you produce more energy from your solar panels that you can use, this excess is sent back to the power grid. And you receive a credit on your energy bill from your energy supplier. This is a feed-in tariff.
How much credit you get on your electricity bill will depend on the amount you feed back, what plan you’re on, and what state you’re in. Australia does not have a national feed-in tariff rate. In NSW current tariff rates are between 7-11cents /kWh exported
If you want to compare electricity prices we recommend we recommend the Energy Made Easy website from the Australian Energy Regulator.
How many panels do I need?
Firstly, you’ll also first need to determine if your roof is suitable — the direction your roof faces, and the material your roof is made from (the most suitable roofs are usually tin, concrete or terracotta tile).
We begin any partnership with Nickel by visiting your property to assess whether your roof is right for solar. It is important that we do an onsite visit in order to design a system that works for your senario. This is an obligation free consultation with one of our team.
