Save with solar

NSW is experiencing a solar power boom. Across the state, record numbers of households are installing small-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. The NSW Government's goal is to have net zero emissions by 2050 and switching to solar can help achieve this target.

A solar feed-in tariff is a payment you get for the excess electricity produced by your system, which is fed back into the grid.

Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, or solar panels, are a way of capturing sunlight and converting it into electricity. They reduce the amount of electricity you need from the grid, which lowers your energy costs.

By registering your solar battery system with a VPP, you could make money from the electricity stored in your battery and help transform the electricity network in New South Wales.

Are you a pensioner and interested in solar energy? You may be eligible for a free 3 kilowatt solar system installed on your home. You will need to meet specific criteria and reside in one of the trial regions.

The Empowering Homes offer for interest-free loans to install solar battery systems closed on 31 July 2022. Find out more on other offers and resources available to help your household save on energy bills.
