Benefits of Solar Power
Generating electricity from solar energy means your home or business uses less fossil fuels, reducing the amount of greenhouse gas emissions and pollution. In addition to the environmental benefits, the financial benefits to you or your company result in lowering your ongoing costs, for businesses this means reducing your overall operating costs as you produce your own power.
Recent government solar incentives are changing the way companies view installing a solar panel system.

Some of the incentives will include a partial grant for grid connected solar PV systems.

- Residential Solar Rebate: $0.75/Watt for up to 15kW (Rebate cannot exceed 30% of eligible expenses or $10k)
