Solar panels convert the sun’s light energy into electricity, which in turn, is used to power homes and businesses. This type of energy is ‘clean,’ reducing CO₂ emissions. Utilising free energy from the sun is cost effective and therefore reduces energy bills.
Are Government rebates still available?
Yes, the Government offers a number of incentives to help you make the switch to solar power. This includes the Solar Credit Rebate Scheme (Federal Government). These rebates are subject to change 30 June 2012.
The Solar Credits Scheme provides extra tradable credits for the first 1.5 kW of small scale PV (photo voltaic) systems. These credits, known as Small-Scale Technology Certificates (STC), can be traded by a homeowner or assigned to Rainey Energy Solutions to obtain a discount on your system price.
What’s the difference between Grid-Connected and Off-Grid?
Grid-Connected refers to solar power systems which are interconnected with existing power utilities.
Off-Grid refers to solar power systems that are NOT connected to the electrical grid. Off-Grid systems are most commonly used in remote areas, utilising battery storage.
