Use our solar power calculator to find out more information about the savings you could make on your bills. With a solar power system you could end up making huge savings annually, with the cost of installation in your home around the same price as you are paying for your current electricity bill.
Simply use the solar power calculator to enter how much you’re currently paying for your energy bills. Our calculations are based on what you’d save with a 6.6kW solar system and provide you with an estimated bill price, what you’d save on each bill and how much you’d roughly save each year.

How Do I Calculate How Much Solar Power I Need?
The weather, climate and angle of your roof can all have an impact on how effective your solar panels will be and can affect the amount of money you’ll save and how much solar power you’ll need. It’s worth taking these variables into account and speaking to one of our experts to find out how you can make the most from solar.
Generally, the best way to make savings from solar is to use your electric during the day whilst the panels are generating. In short, the more electricity you use during the daytime, the higher your solar savings overall will be.
There are financial variables to consider too when it comes to solar power. Our calculator takes these into account and you can be sure you’re getting accurate results at the time of calculation. This includes things like the Australian government solar rebate, state rebates, your feed in tariff and the price to install the panels – all which can impact the price you’ll pay. However, rest assured we provide you with competitively priced packages to make sure you’re making the right decision for your home.

Frequently Asked Questions
There’s never been a better time to go solar!
Solar panels can get really hot, especially on long summer days. The maximum heat a solar panel will get to is around 65°C but they usually range between 15 and 35°C. While they may be warm to touch, there is no real risk of fire. They have an inverter which converts the direct sunlight into energy, which is then used as electricity in your home. Due to this, the panels themselves don’t directly give off electricity.
Solar energy is now more affordable than ever before. The cost has reduced significantly over the years and is now 70% cheaper than when solar panels first became available as an alternative energy source. After the initial installation which can be expensive, you’ll see a huge reduction in your energy bills going forwards making them a great investment for the future.
Yes, renewable energy sources are becoming increasingly cheaper than coal. The rising price of fossil fuels made from power plants means that renewable energy sources, like solar power, are becoming more popular. Renewables are now considered one of the world’s cheapest sources of energy across the globe, especially in countries with warm climates all year round where the source is plentiful.
Yes, solar energy is safe for humans. There is currently no evidence to show that solar energy causes any risk to humans at all. There is actually evidence to suggest that solar energy is better for humans as the use of panels reduces the need to use other electricity-generating sources which lead to air pollution. Air pollution is a cause of cancer.
Yes, you can touch a solar panel but only on the frame or glass covering. You shouldn’t touch the panel itself as this can sometimes get hot and if there is a fault there is some risk of getting an electric shock or even a burn from it. It’s best to avoid touching them all together if you can.
