UNDERSTAND YOUR ENERGY CONSUMPTION

This is the first step to take when determining if solar PV is a viable investment. This process should be completed by your accredited designer during the design and specification stage as part of their load analysis. As a home owner, you can sell your excess electricity generated back to the grid. You do, however, need to consider the financial incentive to do so. In some states, there is currently little financial incentive to export energy to the grid. The most benefit is gained by ‘self-consumption’, which means offsetting the higher retail tariff that you would pay by using power generated by your system instead of drawing power from the grid. Accordingly, you should match your system size to your household consumption. The designer of your system will help you choose a system that suits your needs. The rate for any power exported will depend on your electricity retailer and which state or territory you are in..

The price of your solar PV system is affected by a range of different factors including: 

  • government rebates and support schemes
  • location
  • number of panels
  • orientation of panels and whether tilt frames are required
  • type, quality and efficiency of panels
  • type, quality and efficiency of inverter
  • system design and configuration
  • shipping costs for equipment and parts
  • contractor installation costs
  • after-sales service agreements
  • monitoring equipment and agreements
  • costs of the grid-connection process and equipment needed to connect
  • removal of trees or other shading
  • type of roofing (e.g. tiled, tin, concrete)
  • height and accessibility of roof
  • site preparation needs (e.g. repairing the condition of the roof or ground)
  • structural engineering, architecture and other professional services
  • existing infrastructure upgrades (e.g. distribution board, meter or cabling)

.

Please be aware that some of the costs associated with a solar PV system may fall outside the quote from your solar PV retailer.

WHAT TYPE OF PV MODULES OR INVERTER SHOULD I BUY?

When comparing quotes, the difference in prices between products can be overwhelming. When making the decision that best suits your budget, there are a few important things to consider: • what are the product warranties? Your solar PV retailer will provide a manufacturer’s warranty on the products. The warranty period will often vary between the panels, inverter and other system components. Clean Energy Council Approved Retailers have committed to provide a five-year whole of-system warranty. • Will the solar PV retailer be able to honour these warranties? If the solar PV retailer goes out of business, your warranties could become invalid. In this case, you will need to contact the importer or manufacturer directly to arrange repair or replacement. Make sure you have their details too. • Does the manufacturer have a service office in Australia? Manufacturers that have support offices in Australia, or dedicated importers/registered agents of the products may offer better backup support if a component fails. • Are the PV modules and inverter Clean Energy Council-approved? All PV modules and inverters must meet Australian Standards and be on the Clean Energy Council-approved list in order to be eligible for any government rebates. • Are the PV modules imported through an approved channel? Be wary of PV modules that may not have been imported through channels approved by the PV module manufacturer. The manufacturer may not honour the warranty in this case. Check with your retailer who the importer was and whether they are approved by the manufacturer.

IS YOUR INSTALLER CLEAN ENERGY COUNCIL-ACCREDITED?

To be eligible for government incentives, both the designer and installer of your solar PV system must be accredited by the Clean Energy Council. The Clean Energy Council’s accreditation scheme ensures that accredited designers and installers of solar PV power systems have undergone the necessary professional training, adhere to Australian Standards and follow industry best practice. For a list of accredited professionals, please see solaraccreditation.com.au/ consumers/find-an-installer Accreditation is given to the individual tradesperson who comes to your home to install your solar system, not the solar PV retailer
. You may need to get back in contact with the company to check if the designer and installer they are using are accredited. An accredited installer can easily be identified by their use of the Clean Energy Council accreditation logo. Ask to see the installer’s accreditation ID card when they show up at your home.

SYSTEM DESIGN

Your designer will tailor your solar PV system based on how much you want to spend or finance, how much electricity you wish to offset, and the physical properties of your premises. They will help you: • establish your electrical loads over an average day using a load analysis • determine the size of your solar PV system • choose the type of panels and inverter • establish the location of solar panels in relation to angles, available sunlight, shading and temperature As part of the design and feasibility, your designer/installer should give you an indication of what you can expect in terms of the performance of your system and the factors that may influence this.

CONNECTING YOUR SOLAR PV SYSTEM TO THE GRID IS A TWO-STEP PROCESS THAT INVOLVES:

  1. making an application to connect your system prior to installation (where required), and
  2. meter change/reconfiguration and connection to the grid.

Your solar PV retailer will usually arrange connection of your solar system to the network on your behalf, including preparing and submitting all relevant documentation required from the electricity retailer and/or distributor for meter installation and connection to the network. It is important however to be aware of the process involved, who to contact to follow up on progress, and to ensure that all parties are acting in a timely manner. The grid connection process differs from state to state. Our grid connection guides provide a step-by-step process for your state and are available here: solaraccreditation.com.au/consumers/ small-scale-generation-connection.

APPLICATION TO CONNECT

 

Most distribution companies require pre-approval to connect to their network. This should be done prior to sale and installation. Depending on the size of your system and the characteristics of the local grid you are connecting to, the technical requirements of your distributor may vary. Make sure your solar PV retailer or installer lodges this application early on in the process as the approval process can take up to eight weeks in some areas.

METER CHANGE AND CONNECTING TO THE GRID

Your existing meter will either need to be reconfigured or replaced by a new import/ export meter before you can connect to the grid. This may need to occur before or after installation, depending on the requirements in your state. Your solar PV retailer will need to notify either your distributor or electricity retailer to organise a meter change/ reconfiguration. Meter change/ reconfiguration is then carried out by your distribution company. You will be charged by your distribution company for any costs associated with the meter change. This can be charged to you by your solar retailer or billed to you through your electricity retailer. Make sure you are aware of these costs and how they will be charged.

SYSTEM MAINTENANCE

A solar PV system is a complex electricity generating piece of equipment, and to keep it safe and operating efficiently, it is vital to both maintain your system and operate it safely. A maintenance schedule will be provided by your solar PV retailer or installer that you must take note of and follow. This is necessary to ensure that: • it is operating correctly • the system performance is maintained • the system is safe for everyone in the premises as well as for any electrical workers working on the distribution network Make sure you engage a CEC-accredited installer to undertake maintenance work on your solar PV system. Maintaining your system means much more than just cleaning your panels. An accredited installer will check that the system is functioning safely and efficiently, allowing you to maximise the savings on your power bills for years to come. Some distributors may request that an anti-islanding test of the inverter be carried out periodically. Check with your distributor as each will have different requirements.

INSPECTIONS

 

Following the installation of your solar PV system, safety inspections may be carried out by the relevant electrical authority. Depending on which state you live in, these inspections may be mandatory or may occur on a random audit basis. In some states, your installer is responsible for organising the inspection of your system. The inspection may need to be carried out before the system can be connected to the grid.

UPGRADING YOUR SYSTEM

 

Your ability to upgrade your system in future may depend on receiving permission from your distributor, on suitable PV modules still being available, and on any upgrades meeting current Australian Standards. Upgrading your system may also result in losing your feed-in tariff. You will need to check with your electricity retailer and distributor to fi nd out what the requirements are for upgrading your system. The requirements may differ from state to state.

SAVINGS

There are numerous factors that affect your suitability for solar and the period it will take for your system to ‘pay for itself’. And as the cost of solar has fallen, so have government incentives. You should carefully consider whether solar power is going to be a worthwhile investment for you.

Most Australian electricity retailers offer feed-in tariffs, meaning that they pay you a small amount of money for any excess power you generate. However, the biggest financial benefit from installing solar power comes via ‘self-consumption’ – generating your own electricity instead of purchasing it from the grid at a higher rate. Accordingly, you should choose the size of your solar PV system based on the electricity consumption of your household or business.
