Do your Research

If you are looking to purchase solar panels it’s important to do your research and to shop around to find a system that suits your needs and budget.

  • Shop around: solar panel retailers and installers offer different prices and the quality of systems may vary.
  • Ask solar panel installers and retailers to provide advice on the solar panel system that is appropriate for your electricity needs.
  • Contact your State Government about the current feed-in tariff in your state. A feed-in tariff pays you for electricity generated by your solar PV system.
  • Ask your electricity company how you should apply for a feed-in tariff and how your feed-in tariff agreement will affect your electricity bill.
