Solar is now affordable and accessible
Sola.Plan enables homeowners to switch to solar with no upfront cost. The savings from your reduced energy bill is used to pay off your system cost.
How does it work?
You can now access solar energy without worrying about the upfront out of pocket cost. Your system cost is broken down into small monthly payments spread across 48 months and it’s all interest free.
With Sola.Plan you might be eligible to receive federal and local incentives to help reduce the cost of your solar system. Book a call to find out what incentives you qualify for.
Government incentives and rebates
The Australian Government offers rebates and incentives to make solar more affordable.
There are two ways you can subsidise the cost of your solar system:
This occurs in the form of small-scale technology certificates (STCs), which are issued up front for a system’s expected power generation
The value of the subsidy you receive depends on a few facts: location and size of the solar system and the price of STCs at the time the system is installed.
To be eligible for small-scale technology certificates photovoltaic panels must
- be installed no more than 12 months prior to the creation of certificates, and have its panels and inverter, listed on the Clean Energy Council list of approved components
- meet Australian and New Zealand standards
- you must use a Clean Energy Council accredited designer and installer and meet the Clean Energy Council design and install guidelines
- comply with all local, state, territory and federal requirements, including electrical safety, and
- be classified as small-scale, and a: solar panel system that has a capacity of no more than 100kW, and a total annual electricity output less than 250MWh
The Victorian Government is offering households in Victoria a rebate of $1850 in addtion to the federal rebate. Eligible homeowners can claim a discount up to $1850.
