New South Wales solar rebate
How the rebate works for NSW residentsThe Australian solar power rebate is made up of Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs). The number of STCs you receive varies depending on your location and, the system size that you install. We look at the rebate below for a 6.6kW system in Newcastle:
|Gross system cost:||$11,600|
|Solar panel rebate:||($3,815)|
|Net system cost:||$7,785|
The rebate can save around 33%The solar rebate has brought down the cost of the solar panels by one third. A system size of 6.6kW means that you can claim 109 STCs based on the solar power generation potential of your location, in this case, Newcastle. The price for STCs fluctuates according to demand, for this example we use a rate of $35; 109 x $35 = $3,815.

New South Wales feed-in tariffs
Use your solar power directlyWhile a feed-in tariff helps you to payback your system, the best way to use your solar is to power your appliances directly rather than export excess energy back to the grid.
Best feed-in tariffs in New South Wales
Think long-termWhile any incentive is worth considering, bear in mind that if you buy a sound quality system, you should expect it to last 25 years. We do not include premium feed-in tariff prices in our solar calculator for this very reason, but you can input your tariff rate in the advanced options.
