Commercial PV Price Index – September 2014

This month’s commercial pricing figures include for the first time charts detailing historic trends since Solar Choice began keeping track in May 2014.

The tables below provide an indicative look at pricing for systems up to 100kW in capacity. All figures include GST as well as the STC incentive available through Australia’s federal Renewable Energy Target. STCs contributed an effective system discount of approximately $0.60-0.70 per watt of installed capacity.

About this data

Tables and charts included in this article were compiled using data from Solar Choice’s installer network database, which contains regularly-updated pricing and product details from over 100 solar installation companies across Australia. Prices do not ordinarily incorporate meter installation fees or additional costs, such as ground-mounting or grid connection studies. The discount available to Solar Choice customers is also excluded from calculations, as are prices for ‘premium’ installer offerings. Median high and median low prices are the arithmetic averages taken from the range of high and low prices on offer across cities for each system size.
