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.
