Installing solar panels on your property reduces your electricity bills and lowers your carbon footprint.

Here are some tips to get you started on your solar journey today.

  • Choose a solar panel provider – visit the Clean Energy Council
  • Where to put the panels? A north facing roof is best in Australia
  • You are eligible for discounts on solar through our rewards for residents program
  • Any electricity you use will be free when your system is generating power – when the sun is shining, consider using timers to run your big ticket items during daylight hours (pool pumps, washing and drying, water heating)
  • If you use most of your power during the evening it might be worth considering battery storage. For more information on battery storage visit the Clean Energy Council’s battery storage FAQ’s page
