How Much Will I Save on my Electricity Bills?

This is dependent on a few factors such as the size of your system and the way in which you use electricity (heavy usage in the day or at night) and how much excess is sent back to the grid.

Generally a 1.5kW system installed in NSW can save you $100-$150 per Quarter on your electricity bills. Your Solar Power system is likely to have a life of more than 10 Years – with the Panel Manufacturer providing a 25 Year Performance Guarantee.

You can see from the graph below the ROI over time on Solar, $400 per year with a 5% increase yearly in electricity prices – will end up saving you $5,000 over 10 Years – if you install a 1.5kW System.

 ROI on Solar Energy

Is there a Government Rebate for Solar and if so How Much?

Yes there is a current government rebate. All of the prices displayed or quoted by The Home Improvement People take into account the government Rebate being signed over to HIP.

The Solar rebate was reduced in July 2012, however, HIP has still retained it’s extremely competitive pricing, to ensure you realise a substantial Return on Investment from your Solar Energy installation.

The actual amount of the Rebate depends on the size of the system you purchase.
