The upfront approx 30-40% federal subsidy for solar power systems up to 100kW has been under significant threat since the release of the federal review of the nation's Renewable Energy Target. To protect your subsidy you can use your Solar Choice Quote Comparison to immediately generate an online contract with your preferred installer, any time of the day or night including weekends. Why?

On Thurs, 28 Aug 2014 the federal govt released long-awaited recommendations from the Renewable Energy Target (RET) Review that could either abolish the upfront federal subsidy for solar energy, or severely slash it, for systems up to 100kW

An announcement from the Govt as to which option it will seek to legislate is overdue. Under the Review's recommendations, contracts entered into prior to any announcement will very likely protect your subsidy.

How can I generate an online contract immediately to protect the subsidy?

1. Simply complete the green form on this page to obtain your impartial Quote Comparison of leading installers covering your area.

2. ​Select three installers that best suit your needs and budget to reveal their names and logos, then select your prefered installer by clicking "View and Accept Quote".

3. ​Follow instructions on deposit payment options, following which you will be emailed a PDF of your Accepted Quote (as will your selected installer who'll contact you, and Solar Choice).

Your subsidy will then very likely be protected under transitional provisions recommended by the RET Review.

Solar Choice

Join or start a Solar Community

Let Solar Choice help your neighbourhood go solar

The financial and environmental benefits of installing a solar power system are abundantly clear for individual households: significant savings on power bills and plentiful power from a carbon emission-free energy source. These benefits increase multifold when a solar community is formed.

What is a Solar Community? Power in numbers

A solar community is a group of residents in a particular area who join together in order to get bulk discounts on solar power systems--similar to a solar system bulk-buying arrangement, but with multiple options available to each individual participant. The size of a Solar Community varies, from as small as a few dozen homes to as many as 500+. Anyone--including you--can start a Solar Community.

With a network of hundreds of accredited solar power installers throughout Australia, Solar Choice is well-positioned to negotiate great deals on solar power installations for our customers. Each Solar Community participant may choose from a range of local and national installers, solar system sizes, and system options, all with the free and impartial advice of our friendly brokering team.

To locate or start a solar community in your area call our National Sales Manager on 1300 78 72 73 or send an email to
