    • • Are there conditions attached to the contract incentives?
    • • Are the incentives valid for the lifetime of the contract?

    Going solar – does that save on your average electricity bill

    Use renewable energy and make a real difference to the environment while saving on electricity bills. Solar energy is a viable method of offsetting your carbon footprint on the Gold Coast, where there is ample sunshine year-round.

    Our Sunshine State partner retailers pay solar energy feed-in tariffs for electricity sold back to the grid. After the initial setup, a good quality solar power system will begin to pay for itself over time. With solar you can:

    • • Save on monthly electricity bills
    • • Sell electricity back to the grid
    • • Use or sell solar energy, with zero electricity wasted
    • • Become less reliant on electricity infrastructure
    • • Increase the resale value of your home
