Powering your home with solar

There's a lot to consider when installing solar for the first time:

  • choosing the best solar system for your needs
  • deciding how to pay for it
  • finding an accredited installer
  • connecting to the electricity grid, and
  • accessing a feed-in tariff for any excess energy you export to the grid.

This guide provides information on what to look for when buying and installing solar at your home, and making sure you get a good deal.
