Did you know you could be saving up to $1,474 a year* on your energy bill with solar?

To find out how, we have created an easy five step plan to help you.

Step 1: Background reading - a good starting point is to read our solar FAQs. The Clean Energy Council also has a comprehensive guide for consumers called Buying Solar.  

Step 2: Dig out your energy bills – preferably the last 12 months of bills. This will help you work out your specific solar needs and payback time.

Step 3: Use the SunSPoT Tool to help calculate what size system can fit on your roof and how much you could save per year on your electricity bills.

Step 4: Choosing a solar retailer - it really pays to do your research and get several quotes. Read our guide to Simplifying Solar: Getting a Solar Quote or the Clean Energy Council’s Buying Solar (page 6).

Step 5: Review your quotes and contracts - read Council’s Simplifying Solar: Getting a Solar Quote or refer to ‘Questions to ask your solar retailer’ checklist p12 of the Clean Energy Council Buying Solar.

Still have questions?
