Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk once said “We have this handy fusion reactor in the sky called the sun. You don’t have to do anything. It just works. It shows up every day and produces ridiculous amounts of power.”
That is so true. Solar energy offers such a huge potential of natural resources, it is a future-oriented energy supply that is the expansion of renewable energies. And the Australian Federal and State Government couldn’t resonate more with that.
Since nearly a decade ago, the government has been actively encouraging Australian households and businesses to make the switch to solar. Not only because it creates vast job opportunities in the market, its primary aim is to help Australians take control of their energy bills of which their continual rise has been an ongoing issue of concern for years.
Hence the introduction and implementation of the “Australia Solar Rebate Scheme” program. Initiated in 2011, this is a subsidy and incentives program the government is offering to help Australians reduce the upfront cost of installing solar panels.
Eligible households will find themselves looking at a generous reduction of 30% - 50% of what it used to cost to buy solar panels, with many even enjoying a $0 upfront cost system when they combined the Federal and State financial incentives that are applicable. Essentially, this means they do not need to fork out even a single dollar when they make the switch.
For businesses, the solar incentives available are even more appealing. You are looking at benefits like instant assets write-off, which incidentally means achieving a quicker payback period that can be as short as in 3 years.
The rebate scheme will not be around forever though. A 30-year plan that is phasing out gradually with incentive amounts being reduced every year, this is a case of the earlier you act, the more benefits you will get.
Which is why you see over 3 million of Australian households and businesses (and counting) have already made the switch to solar when just a decade ago, the number of rooftop solar systems in Australia is less than 100,000. More and more of the public are now aware of the schemes and rebates available, and many are rushing to get the best deal available before they are completely scrapped off.
You too, can be one of them waving goodbye to your old electricity bills, forever freed from the ever-rising energy costs. Check your eligibility and find out how much you can claim from your solar rebates today by visiting: https://www.australiasolarrebates.com.au/
