Solar Rebates

Queensland Government Solar Feed-in Tariffs

When your solar system is producing excess power, this is exported back to the electricity grids for use across the network. You are rewarded for providing that electricity through feed-in tariffs from energy retails which vary depending on the provider.

There is no legislated market rate but the retailers are in competition so the tariff rates do sit around market value. This is called the market feed-in tariff and it is taken off your electricity bill by your retailer.

 

Small-scale Technology Certificates in Queensland

These small-scale technology certificates are available for solar energy and are issued by the Federal Government as a form of a rebate. This is a way that you can receive rebates for solar energy technologies to be installed on your home so that you can save money – an incentive to get more people to invest in solar technologies.

 

The value of these certificates vary and the amount of certificates you receive for installing solar systems  also varies depending on which part of Queensland you are living in. 

Solar Warranties - know what's covered

In less than 10 years over 700 solar companies (Courier Mail 16 September 2019) have gone bankrupt, leaving many solar owners in the dark when it comes to warranties. These ‘cowboy’ operators used inferior panels and left shonky installations in their wake. Unfortunately, some of these operators have reopened under a new business name so it’s best to do your homework when selecting a company for your solar installation to secure the warranty of the system.

If the manufacturer of the solar products supplied is no longer in business or Australia, it is up to the company who installed your system to replace any faulty equipment under the warranty. There are two types of warranty - a performance warranty and product warranty. A performance warranty can last up to 25 years (or possibly longer), but it considers the effect of ageing on a panel. This means the expected performance will reduce in a tiered manner over the warranty period.

We at SC Solar only use quality products from well-known and supported suppliers with global backing. So, don’t pay by price and pay twice, make sure your solar installation and solar products are quality guaranteed.
