How will a photovoltaic grid-connect solar installation reduce my electricity bill?

A grid-connect solar electricity installation can reduce your electricity bill in two ways.

Firstly, the system provides power during the daytime, so you won't need to draw electricity from the mains during this time (unless you're using more than the panels generate).

Secondly, any excess electricity generated by the panels is fed into the mains grid and your electricity bill will be credited for this power at the feed-in tariff (legislated at a minimum 44 c/kWh in Queensland).

We would recommend using electricity before 9:00 am and after 3:00 pm for large loads such as pool pumps, washing machines and ovens.
