Solar PV

Solar PV Systems harness the suns energy and produce clean and safe electricity, which lowers your carbon footprint, keeps your Electricity bills in check and is the only energy that we can renew and get a positive return for the whole life of the system.

Households can reduce energy bills by as much as 100% depending on the size of the system installed and how energy efficient the house is. This means less dependence on electricity from the Grid generators and coal-fired power stations.
Solar panels last for 20-30 years and once installed you have a free source of electricity, and you can even generate income from the electricity you feed back into the electricity grid.

The team at Smarter Green Pty.Ltd. has highly trained and experienced staff in the field of design and installation of Solar PV Systems. We pride ourselves in our workmanship and professionalism, and approach each installation with integrity. We ensure that all systems are installed in the best possible manner for the customer to achieve the best outcome, whilst ensuring that all regulatory requirements are met.

Our team of solar technicians are qualified and Clean Energy Council accredited for Design and Installation of Solar PV Systems. Our A Class Solar accredited Electricians are qualified and registered with Energy Safe Victoria.

Feed-in Tariff

There is a lot of concern about the discontinuance of the transitional feed in tariff rate and is the same now across the country, some retailers still have offerings of 30c + tariff. The real value of a Solar PV system is yet to be realised, some people are concerned about what the return value for producing electricity from their roof instead of focussing on controlling the rising costs and reducing their consumptions.
A net feed-in tariff means that the electricity you produce from solar panelswill be converted to usable power at the inverter and used within the premises. Any remaining can be metered at the switchboard and sold back to the electricity companies at 8 cents per kWh.

The credit can be used for purchasing electricity from the grid when additional electricity is required, and with some retailers any excess can be taken as cash.

Solar Credits Scheme

This offers two Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) for every megawatt hour (MWh) of clean energy the system produces (multiples up to a maximum 1.5kW system), instead of the usual one REC per MWh.
REC’s or STC’s(Small scale technology certificates) are effectively a currency for renewable energy and are created under the RET. The number of STCs you receive is based on the assumed quantity of electricity which will be generated by your solar system over the next 15 years.

By assigning the STCs to Smarter Green, we can offer a point of sale discount, once the system is installed we will then organise the sale of the STC’s on the open market. (you can also to choose not to take the discount and retain the STCs yourself)
