Our solar technician will come out and assess your property’s roof, switchboard, and general suitability for solar panels. This is necessary to design an effective solar system. Whilst there, we also do an electrical demand analysis to give us an accurate reading on how many panels will generate sufficient power to meet your energy usage requirements.

Now that we’ve taken out all the guess work, we provide a tailor-made solar system specifically designed for your property and a quote with all costs involved so there are no hidden costs!

Unless you have been living under a rock then you would have heard about all the benefits of having a solar system installed at your home or business on The Gold Coast. The benefits are endless, starting with saving the planet, saving you money and also improving your long time health but if you haven’t moved t solar already maybe you have one question in mind, what’s the cost of a solar installation on The Gold Coast.

Whilst there is no doubt that the cost of installing solar has come down considerably, it will still be a considerable investment to join the green revolution. So the question still begs, how much?

The Short Answer
Ok, so the short answer to the cost question is that a standard ROOFTOP installation will cost you anywhere between $3000 and $12,000, factors that will determine your cost are:

• Where you are located
• Where the system is being installed
• How big a system you require – obviously the bigger the system the more expensive it will be.

These prices will take into account the government STC rebates and discounts, which can be up to a few thousand dollars in some cases.

A good rule of thumb is that a solar installation on The Gold Coast will cost you around $1.40 per watt ($1,400 per KW). The price will become cheaper per watt the bigger the system you are looking at is.

Other factors to consider
• Roof Condition – the condition of your roof will have an impact on the cost of your solar installation on The Gold Coast. If you have an old roof, installers would need to be extra careful and your installation will take longer. Your quote will let you know the details of your roof and if there is an extra cost.
• Flat Roof – Solar panels prefer a sloping roof which gives them a natural angle towards the suns rays to help maximise exposure. If you have a flat roof then you will need additional mounting installed to get the angle to the sun correct. This will be an additional cost.
• Panel Quality – Not all solar panels are created equally and if you want a high-grade panel you are going to have to pay a little extra for the privilege.
• Demand – Supply and demand is a huge cost factor in the solar industry. Some of the best installers are booked up for a long time in advance and will charge a premium for their jobs. If the supplier is very busy you can expect to pay more for your solar installation on The Gold Coast.

Definitely worth the investment!
Although it might be an initial outlay, having solar installed on The Gold Coast is a must and will prove to save you money in the end. Most quality installation companies will offer finance options that will ensure that you get the best system available for your property for a small monthly payment.
