With a large amount of sun in Brisbane and Queensland, a significant amount of savings can be made on electricity with a solar system installed. A small 1.5kW solar system will result in approximately 6.3Wh of electricity on average per day, whilst a large 5kW system will generate around 21kWh a day, enough for most households of 3-4 people.
The following table shows what system size you will need for a small, medium and large household.
|Small Home||Medium Home||Large Home|
|1.5kw system||3kw system||4kw system|
|6.3kWh ave daily output||12.6Wh ave daily output||16.8kWh ave daily output|
Although the government no longer offers a feed in tariff for new installations, most energy retailers in Queensland continue to offer competitive feed in tariff rates to their customers.

|Energy Australia||6 cents||Website|
|Click Energy||10 cents||Website|
With Queensland electricity rates steadily increasing, a typical install can pay for itself within 5 years particularly where you have significant day time power usage. With the current average retail tariff rate it is best to utilise as much solar power as possible during daylight hours to maximise savings.
Electricity prices are continuing to rise, whilst panels have come down in price 75% in the last 4 years. Make your switch to solar today!
