What is a Solar Energy Plan?

A Solar Energy Plan is your opportunity to go off-grid without ever leaving the city. Sort of. With your home solar panels and Solar Energy Plan, you could generate and use your own electricity, as well as sell any excess back to the grid.

Why should I compare Solar Energy Plans?

Comparing Solar Energy Plans can help you be an informed consumer, not to mention find an option that better suits your needs and improves the value you get from your solar system.

Is a Solar Energy Plan worth it?

A Solar Energy Plan’s worth to you might be as sure a thing as the sun coming up. But it all depends on your unique circumstances, particularly your electricity usage. Making the switch to solar is about satisfying your electricity needs as much as possible at home rather than relying on the grid, which can lead to some savings too.

How can I tell if a Solar Energy Plan gives me value?

To see how a Solar Energy Plan measures up, it can help to line it up against your electricity usage habits and what you can realistically generate. Ultimately, you’re after a plan that works with your usage patterns and makes solar worthwhile for you.

What is a feed-in tariff?

Your Solar Electricity Plan may come with a feed-in tariff (sometimes called a FiT or buyback rate). This is a rate for selling solar electricity you don’t use back to the electricity grid through your retailer. However, what rate that is will vary due to factors like your plan, your retailer and even where you live.

Do I need a battery?

You don’t need a battery for your solar system to enjoy a Solar Energy Plan, although a battery may help you get more value out of the plan. With a battery, you can store excess solar-generated electricity for use later, whether the sun is shining or not. You can also become part of a Virtual Power Plant, if that’s an option with your provider, to help your community run a little greener.
