Are there tax incentives if I install solar?
Yes. Solar Systems qualify for the Federal Government’s instant asset write off program.
The $30,000 Instant Asset Write-Off provides small businesses with an asset write-off of up to $30,000 for assets costing less than the instant asset write-off threshold which are purchased and used in the year that the write-off is claimed.
You will also receive a discount on the purchase price through the federal government’s Renewable Energy Certificates program. This will significantly reduce the capital expenditure.
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 solar panels do I need?
Most likely, you’ll need 6–12 solar panels, but this will be determined by a combination of factors. The number of solar panels you’ll need depends how much power you want to generate, as well as the suitability of your roof.
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.
