This month Solar Choice upgraded its price reporting functionality to encompass a larger number of commercial installers – with interesting results. While average prices now appear as higher for 30kW, 50kW and 100kW systems in all the cities included our tables, 10kW system prices are lower. Meanwhile, pricing figures now span a broader range than previously seen in our data, with median high and low prices sitting at more extreme ends of the spectrum – around $3.76/W and $0.95/W, respectively. Tasmania was excluded from this month’s tables due to paucity of data.

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. Although all pricing calculations do account for federal incentives and GST, they do not 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.
