Solar energy is free and inexhaustible. It is non-polluting and environmentally friendly, so not only are you saving money, you are saving the environment. Installing a solar hot water system reduces greenhouse gas emissions, a win for our planet’s future.
To encourage people to switch to solar, the Australian Government is offering incentives under the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme. Purchasing a solar hot water system qualifies you for a number of small-scale technology certificates (STCs). STCs are calculated by the amount of electricity a system produces or displaces and so the amount you receive will vary according to the size of the system installed. The value of the STCs also varies according to market conditions.
The cost of purchasing a solar hot water heater varies according to the model, the size of the system and what type of existing water heater you are replacing. Determining the right model for your home depends on several factors, including: climate, size and orientation of your home, shadowing, characteristics of the roof, number of occupants, and your usual hot water usage.
