How much does the solar system cost in Australia in 2021?
As one of Australia’s leading providers of solar panels in Australia, Energenic Solar System is here to break down the costs of solar panels across the nation. While we’d love to provide you with an approximate dollar figure in response to the question, “How much do solar systems cost or how much do domestic solar power systems cost?” A number of factors affect solar panel pricing in Australia; the most important is what type of solar panels you select for your home.
Of course, the cost of your new solar system will be determined by the size of the installation. To put it another way, the number of kiloWatts (kW) of solar panels you select to install will influence the price.
Domestic solar power systems costs have dropped dramatically as Australia’s main solar industries have grown, and Australia can now import solar panels at a reasonable cost. Because Australia is way closer to China than the United States, solar panels and other associated equipment may be cheaper. Another important consideration is how each country has decided to address the solar power system.
And, contrary to popular belief, the Australian government’s solar rebate scheme will still greatly subsidize the cost of a PV system in 2021.
The rebate fluctuates depending on the value of STCs, which every solar panel company gives. With the current price of STCs as of September 2021, you’ll save around $494 per kW installed upfront.
In the below table, you will know how the pricing works out for a typical 6.6kW system, which also includes installation charges:
Cost of an installed 6.6kW solar system
|cost of an installed 6.6kW solar system||$9,500|
|Cost to you for 6.6kW of solar power||Approx $6,040|
It’s a good question to consider before installing any size solar panel. Such a 6.6kW system is the right size for you or not? Ask your installer about the size first. In 2021, it’s the minimum we will suggest you put on your roof, assuming it can fit.
Costs Of Solar Systems After the Rebate in 2021:
The quality of the hardware used in the installation determines the price range mentioned below in Australia. The fully installed estimated cost of a good quality solar system installation with Tier 1 solar panels in Australia as of August 2021 is:
|System size||Number of panels||Cost Range (September 2021)|
|$2,500 – $4,000|
|$3,000 – $4,500|
|$3,500 – $5,000|
|$4,000 – $6,000|
|$4,500 – $8,000|
|$5,000 – $9,000|
|$6,500 – $10,000|
|$7,500 – $11,000|
|$8,000 – $12,000|
Note: The above assumes the usage of 370W solar panels; therefore, the actual solar panel capacity may differ slightly from the figures given.
