Now is a great time to consider investing in Solar Energy whilst the Government is still offering thousands of dollars to assist.
The Federal Labor Government introduced in 2009, a Solar Credits Scheme as an incentive to invest in renewable energy as part of a Renewable Energy Target (RET) introduced by the Coalition Government in 2001. The Renewable Energy Target is designed to encourage investment in new large-scale renewable power stations and the installation of new small-scale systems, such as solar photovoltaic (PV) in households, small business and non profit organisations. The Renewable Energy Target aims to ensure that at least 20 per cent of Australia’s electricity supply will come from renewable sources by 2020.
The Renewable Energy Target has two core components: The Large-scale Renewable Energy Target (LRET) and the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES). Together, these schemes create a financial incentive for investment in renewable energy.
If you purchase a Solar System today, you will receive a subsidy via the government scheme, each kW installed is worth approx $750. For example, this would result in approximately $22,500 off a 30kW Solar Energy System, which would be applied at the point of sale to reduce the total capital required to install the solar system. (This is an example only an may differ from the value of your rebate at the time of quotation)
Harvey Norman Commercial Solar will apply your rebate at the point of sale to discount the total cost of the supply and installation of a Solar Energy System for your business. The value of your rebate will be provided to you in your quotation.
