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

Accredited Solar Installers across Australia

All solar installers on the Solar Choice network are Clean Energy Council-accredited

The Clean Energy Council of (CEC) Australia grants certification to solar system installers who have completed their accreditation program and meet their certification requirements. Since the beginning of CEC accreditation and the introduction of federal and state renewable energy incentive schemes, the number of installers has swelled enormously. With such a large number of accredited solar panel installers across the country - many more reputable, experienced and reliable than others - it can be difficult to make the right selection and obtain the best value deal to suit your individual preferences.

Let Solar Choice make it easy for you.

How Solar Choice introduces you to accredited solar system installers

We listen to what your solar energy requirements, and address any queries you have objectively and impartially. Rather than try to push or persuade you to go with one solar panel installer over another, we help you to a point where you can make an educated selection.

Personalised solar quote comparisons

We'll take an aerial view of your roof using Google Earth, and then provide you with a professionally compiled and easy to follow Quote Comparison Summary of the panels, inverters, warranties, places of manufacture and prices offered by the Solar Choice Clean Energy Council-accredited solar installers who cover your area. This quote comparison will also disclose the Solar Choice Discount you're entitled to.

We then arrange for the solar panel installer you've selected to formalise your agreement, or to save time our online system can provide you with a consolidated solar quote with the installer's Terms and Conditions, which you can accept before you proceed on to pay your deposit. Solar Choice remains with you should you require advice and assistance at every stage up to and even after installation.

Installation of solar panels in an average household system generally takes less than a day.

Because we provide a greater volume of work to our selected installers, we're able to arrange a better price for your installation than if you dealt with them directly. The quote you are given will fully disclose your discount.

You don't have to pay us anything; the installers pay Solar Choice for our efforts.

Call us on 1300 78 72 73, and let us source a great solar energy deal for you.
