Solar Estimator

Considering installing a solar PV system? Use our Solar Estimator to understand the benefits and costs for a solar system that suits you.

  • What are the savings from solar?

    Solar panels convert sunlight into electricity which you can use in your home or sell back to the grid. By reducing how much power you need to draw from the grid during the day, you can make big reductions in your bill. Any extra power you produce will automatically be sold back to the grid which further increases your savings.

  • How does the Solar Estimator work?

    The Solar Estimator estimates the cost of a solar system and the potential cost savings from the system. By entering your average daily energy usage and the size of a solar system, the estimated cost of a solar system and annual savings are calculated.
