So… whats new?

Well, what isn’t?

With a plethora of manufacturers bringing out ‘new and improved’ products, government rebates changing every year and electricity retailers offering different feed-in-tariffs, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to solar.

Research is king, so these are some things to consider going into 2021:

Reducing Government Rebates

While they’re not going anywhere until 2030, government rebates for residential solar installations are dropping by 10% annually, meaning the longer you put-off getting solar, the more you will end up paying.

Let’s crunch some numbers..

If you install a common 6.6kW system in 2020, you receive roughly $3700 in government rebates. However, if you wait until the new year – you will lose approximately $333. This could be even more as STC prices fluctuate depending on market conditions.

If there is a large influx of solar being purchased (as there is late in the year) STC prices drop.
