This month we have changed our methodology for calculating commercial solar system prices, leaving out the installer-nominated ‘Solar Choice Discount’ which is usually added on to the ‘final total’ column in our calculation spreadsheets. The result is what would appear to be lower system prices across most system sizes, and is a more accurate reflection of the pricing points available through the Solar Choice network.
Commercial solar system prices (10kW-100kW)
All prices in the tables below are include incentives available through the federal Renewable Energy Target as well as GST.
Table 1: Commercial solar PV system prices for November 2015 (average)
Table 2: $/W commercial solar PV system prices for November 2015 (average)
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. ‘Premium’ installer offerings are not included in the calculations.
