Solar Panel Buyer’s Guide



One in every five Australian houses now has a rooftop solar panel system installed1, with a combination of falling prices for new solar panels and increasing electricity prices making solar increasingly profitable for more households.

However it hasn’t all been good news for home owners recently. Government rebates have been wound back and the prices paid to households for sending their solar power back to the grid remain low in some states. Therefore it’s important to consider all the factors before making a decision about whether solar is right for you.

How our Guide Works

Money Grows on Trees has developed an easy to understand Solar Panel Buyers Guide to help you work out whether solar panels are the right option for your home. Our Guide helps you understand:

Once you’ve finished reading this guide, you should be able to:

  • Decide whether to install solar panels in your home
  • Ask a supplier all the right questions to ensure you get the best possible value and quality from your system
