Victoria has just ticked over 100,000 Solar Homes installation the other day.
Feed-in tariff inquiry. The Victorian Government has announced an inquiry into feed-in tariff arrangements in Victoria. This inquiry will investigate whether current regulations for compensating Victorian households and businesses for generating solar power are adequate. It will also consider the environmental and social value of distributed generation.
Making the most of your solar panelsIf your home has solar panels – installed by you, or your landlord – you may need to re-think the way you consume electricity in order to reap the greatest benefit
The Victorian feed-in tariff currently offers a minimum of five cents per kilowatt hour for excess electricity fed back into the grid. All electricity retailers with more than 5,000 customers must offer at least this minimum rate, but they may offer different packages and terms and conditions.
Going Solar with Island Energy! Firstly I would like to thank you for taking the time to read this and allowing us to set up a proposal for Solar Power to suit your needs.
A great job down at South Coast Kitchens last week installing a 70 kW system. With 268 panels installed on the factory in Newhaven South Coast Kitchens will be completely self sufficient during daylight operating hours.
Great little solar install with the guys at Open Homes Australia. We installed a 4kW system using a SMA inverter and Trina Honey panels
With 3.5 million solar panels installed on Australian roof space in 2017 a 41% increase on the previous year and with 2018 set to see the industry go from strength to strength the question has to be asked ‘Why are so many Australians going solar?’
Island Energy has recently become a signatory of the CEC Approved Solar Retailer Code of Conduct.
If you have been door knocked by a sales company pushing solar this may be cause for alarm! Credible Solar Companies rarely (if ever) door knock residential properties. Often door knocking salesman are paid commission on each sale and the prices are hugely inflated so they can get their slice of the pie. They will sell you ANYTHING to make a dollar. They do not have solar knowledge, just sales tactics to get you to sign on the dotted line.
Australia is blessed with a very dry climate in comparison with a lot of other countries increasing their solar uptake and benefits from a latitude advantage.
