How much do Solar Panels cost?
As a very rough guide, the total cost of getting a home solar system up and running is between $2500 (for a small 1.5 kW system) and $11,500 (for a top-of-the-line 5 kW system).
For businesses, the approximate cost of installing solar ranges from around $15,000 (for a 10kW system) to more than $200,000 (for a high-capacity 100 kW system).
The upfront cost of your solar PV system is affected by a number of different factors, including:
government incentives and support schemes available
contractor installation costs
type and number of solar panels, which affect the output of your system in kilowatts (kW)
type and size of inverter (the part of the system that converts the electrical output of your solar panels into AC electricity for use in your home or business)
type of framing equipment and other system components
height and accessibility of roof and whether it is tiled, metal or concrete
any after-sales service agreements
How can solar generation reduce my electricity bills?
A typical residential household consumes about 6,500 kilowatt hours of electricity per year. Instead of purchasing all this electricity from your retailer, you can use the energy you generate from your own solar system and only purchase any extra electricity required from your retailer. Implementing this arrangement requires 'net' metering (see below).
According to estimates from the Clean Energy Council, an average 2 kilowatt system installed in Sydney will generate around 7.8 kilowatt hours per day, which is around 2,847 kilowatt hours per annum. This is close to 40 per cent of the average household consumption, and could represent a substantial saving on your electricity bill.
How much will a solar PV system
reduce my bill by?
How much of a saving you receive depends on many different aspects, including the size, quality and site of your system, your electricity usage patterns, the weather, and any feed-in tariff paid by your retailer.
Your installer can advise you on the expected output of a particular model and size of system installed at your house or business. Having a typical electricity account on hand and knowing the time of day you typically use your electricity will help your installer match the system to your needs.
What is the warranty cover

Your current energy usage. If you use more energy, you will need a bigger solar system.
Your state’s net metering policy. Net metering policy determines whether (and how much) you can feed your excess energy back to the electricity grid.
Your eligibility for tax credits, rebates, or incentives.
Your decision to lease or buy your solar system. With utility prices on the historic rise in most markets, you can save over the long term with solar.
