Solar Panel Buyer’s Guide



Approximately 1.5 million Australian houses now have solar panel systems (also known as solar PV systems) installed, up from just 8,000 in 2007. Generous government rebates and falling prices for new solar panels have made it economical, and in some cases profitable, for households to install them.

However in the last 1-2 years, solar power rebates from both state and federal governments have been cut significantly. Despite that, prices for solar panels have continued to fall and the cost of electricity has continued to rise. As a result solar panels remain attractive, but households now need to think a lot harder about whether they’ll be economical for their circumstances.
