Feed-in Tariffs This depends on the size of the system you choose to install. The larger the system, the more electricity you can offset. We have a range of systems available to suit your needs. Save on your electricity bill by being reimbursed for any surplus energy you generate. These are called feed-in tariffs (FITs) where the excess electricity you generate is fed back into the grid and credited to your electricity bill. FITs vary depending on the size of your system and the State you live in. Call one of our consultants for more information. Rebates You receive these at the time of purchase. Small-Scale Technology Certificates (STCs) depend on the size of your system, where you live and the value of the certificates at the time of purchase. When you buy a solar system from EnergyAustralia you can assign us your STCs in exchange for a discount on your system. We’ll even calculate your STCs and manage all your paperwork. Payback Solar energy ‘payback’ is the period of time it takes for a solar system to pay for itself, and will vary depending on your energy usage. How solar power works The technology behind solar power may seem complex, but converting sunlight to electricity is simple and creates a clean, safe energy system. 1 The sun’s energy Sunlight contains energy. Solar power is still generated on overcast days. 2 Solar Panels These roof-mounted panels contain photovoltaic cells. When sunlight falls on the cells they convert the sun’s energy into DC power. 5 The electricity grid Any surplus energy your home generates is fed back into the grid for others to use. When you need additional power, the grid provides this. 3 An inverter Connected by a cable to the solar panels,the inverter converts the DC power to 240V AC power, the type of electricity used in your home. 4 A bi-directional electricity meter A meter that measures in half-hour blocks both the power your business uses and the power sent back to the grid. The power you don’t use can be sold back to the grid if you’re eligible. This is called the feed-in tariff.
