The benefits of installing solar panels in QLD

Rebates for installing solar panels in QLD

Homeowners installing solar panels in sunny Queensland are entitled to the Federal Government's STC 'rebate' - more commonly referred to as the 'solar rebate'. This financial incentive comes in the form of Small-Scale Technology Certificates (or STCs). When you install a solar power system, a certain number of STCs are created based on the size and the location of your solar installation. Each STC carries a monetary value, and the total value of these certificates equates to your 'solar rebate.' The more solar panels that you install, the bigger the value of your 'solar rebate'.

Your chosen solar company will handle the application for the rebate on your behalf and apply the value of this rebate as a discount at the point of sale. You can read more in-depth about the STC rebate in our recent blog post on the subject. To make life easy, we have calculated the value of the STC rebate you are entitled to for common solar system sizes here in Queensland below:

System Size Federal Government Rebate (STC's) State Government Rebate
2 kW $1080 Solar for renters (trial)
3 kW $1620 Solar for renters (trial)
4 kW $2160 Solar for renters (trial)
5 kW $2736 Solar for renters (trial)
6.6 kW $3600 Solar for renters (trial)
10 kW $5472 Solar for renters (trial)

*Please note that the STC rebate calculations are based on solar panels installed in Brisbane, QLD (Zone 3) using an STC price of $36.00.

In addition to the Federal Government STC rebate, you may be eligible for the following Queensland State Government rebate:

Solar for Renters (trial) - rebates of up to $3500 are available to landlords that install a solar system on their rental property. During the trial phase, the rental property must be in the Bundaberg, Gladstone, or Townsville local government areas. There are 1000 rebates available during the trial of this scheme.

Feed-in tariff rates offered by retailers in QLD

Solar feed-in tariffs (FITs) are the amount you get paid by your energy retailer for the excess energy your solar panels export back into the grid. During the day, it’s typical for your solar power system to generate more power than is being used in your home. This excess means that if you have a grid-connected solar system, the energy you don't use feeds back into the grid, and your energy retailer will pay you a fixed amount per kWh of energy that you send to them. The retailer-provided solar FITs listed here do not include any bonus feed-in tariff that may be provided by the QLD State Government.

Simple guide to sizing your solar system in QLD

Choosing the right system size depends on many factors, including how much power you use during daylight hours, your roof orientation, whether shading will be an issue, and how much roof space you have at your home or business. In general, if you can afford to pay your power bills, then you can afford to invest in solar because the system will pay for itself in energy savings. As a rough guide, you can compare the average daily power usage on your power bill to the average daily output of common system sizes we have calculated in the table below:

System Size Avg daily output Return on Investment
2 kW 8.4 kWh 3 - 5 years
3 kW 12.6 kWh 3 - 5 years
4 kW 16.8 kWh 3 - 5 years
5 kW 21.0 kWh 3 - 5 years
6.6 kW 27.7 kWh 3 - 5 years
10 kW 42.0 kWh 3 - 5 years

*Please note that the location used for above the daily output calculations is Brisbane, QLD - based on the Clean Energy Council GC Design Guidelines.
