Invest in home solar and save
Most of us now know a homeowner who has solar power installed. Who doesn’t want free power? Investing in a home solar system lifts the value of your property and reduces your reliance shrinking your bills and saving you money.
The process is easy and we drive it for you
Solstra will undertake a full consultation and inspection of your home to assess your power usage, costs and needs. Using that information, we provide solar system design recommendations that Solstra can design and install, tailored to your home. We will talk you through it so you can understand the value and features of each option and make your selection.
If you are claiming the rebate currently available through the Solar Homes Program, we facilitate the online approval process and the rebate amount is deducted from the total cost of your solar system. The savings for this rebate are up to $1,400!
In addition to the state rebate, you also automatically get the federal government STC discount (the amount varies), which again is simply deducted from the total cost of your system.
Installation of a typical solar system (for an average-sized family home) can be completed by our team in one day.
After inspection and sign-off, we send a copy of the Certificate of Electrical Safety, along with other technical documentation to your electricity retailer. This lodgement prompts your retailer to configure your electricity meter for solar, so you can receive feed-in credits for any excess power your system generates and sends into the grid. We do this on your behalf, so you don’t need to worry about any of the technicalities.
We also set-up your system monitoring so that you can see how your system is performing at any time – most monitoring platforms are easily accessible via an app on your phone.
Lastly, we take care of lodging any manufacturer warranties that are applicable for your system and provide you with the warranty certificates.
