On the 1st of July 2010, the cost of power in Queensland increased by a whopping 13% and another 6.6% in 2011. The best way to protect your family against the ever-increasing costs of energy is to install a photovoltaic grid connect solar system for your home. With new rebates available, there’s never been a better time to go solar and start producing your own clean, green, renewable power straight from the sun. What are you waiting for? Start saving with solar today!
GO GREEN FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
Did you know electricity generation is responsible for around 60% of Australia’s carbon emissions? Installing a grid connect solar system for your home is the simplest and most effective way to significantly cut your carbon emissions. By installing a 1.5kW solar system, the average household will cut their energy use by up to 40%. By installing solar in your home, you are doing your bit to save the planet and provide a clean, green future for your children and your children’s children.
SELL BACK TO THE GRID
Any excess power your solar system generates is fed back into the electricity grid and sold to your electricity supplier for an extra credit on your power bill. The Solar Bonus Scheme is now in effect in Queensland, meaning you can export your excess electricity back into the grid for more than double the current general domestic use tariff.

ADD VALUE TO YOUR HOME
Eco-friendly homes fetch more money on the property market and the demand for sustainable houses is constantly increasing. In fact, new homes built in Queensland must now meet sustainability standards. From January 1, 2010, a sustainability declaration must be completed by the seller of any house, townhouse or unit to inform the buyers about the sustainability features of a property in four key areas: energy; water; access; and safety. By installing a grid connect solar system and a hot water heat pump system in your home, you can make your house more energy efficient and significantly increase its sustainability rating; in turn increasing its resale value.
