Solar power is cheaper alternative
The incentives for how solar power is produced and consumed have changed dramatically since the Feed-in Tariff [FIT] component was reduced in 2011.
Previously, customers were best off using as many appliances as possible outside of daylight hours so that they could export as much energy as possible at the higher 47c rate. Now that you’ll be receiving only 8.4c which is less than what you pay for your electricity, the incentive is to use all major appliances during daylight hours so that you’re offsetting this usage with your own solar power. Most customers now install systems which will offset only what they use during the day with taking into account any anticipated changes over the coming years such as a growing family or retirement.
A big factor that has reduced the effect of the FiT’s removal is the fact that panel prices have plummeted globally over the last year due to oversupply from China which has meant that a 5kW system which would have cost $25,000 last year now costs around $8,000.
The ever increasing cost of electricity means that solar is still a great investment and its benefits will only increase as years go by.
If you have any questions about how to use the formulas or any other matter, please don’t hesitate to ask us a question.
