Solar panels use layers of special materials called semiconductors that create electricity when exposed to sufficient light. There are different types of solar panel construction. Some panels tend to perform better in high temperatures and low light situations, but take up around twice the space.
In the vast majority of cases, getting solar power will help reduce your electricity bills through reducing the amount of power you buy from the grid and through the feed-in tariff you receive for the excess power you sell to the grid. The amount of electricity you have will depend upon a range of factors including the size of the system, whether the system has been installed in the optimal location and your individual electricity use patterns. Be wary of claims that you will never need to pay a bill again or can eliminate your electricity bills.
The Federal Government financial incentives for solar power in community organisations and small businesses is the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES). Under this scheme, a solar power system can create Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs) that may be sold to partially offset the price of the system. STCs have replaced the former Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs). Feed-in tariffs are a different type of benefit that provides ongoing financial incentive rather than an upfront price reduction. Feed-in Tariffs are usually applied to your electricity account via your energy retailer for any energy that if fed back to the grid from your Solar System. Be aware that Tariff rates vary so ask your retailer about what rate they provide per kW.
The payback period of a solar power system varies widely depending on the initial investment for the system, the size of the system, the usage patterns of the consumer and the price received as a feed-in tariff from the energy retailer. For premises that use small amounts of electricity and receive the premium feed-in tariff, the payback period can be less than 3 years. For premises that use a lot of electricity and are not eligible for the premium feed-in tariff, the payback period will be closer to 7 years.
