Solar panels and your home

Solar Estimator

By entering your average daily energy use and the number of panels you're considering installing, this calculator will estimate the cost of a solar system and the annual savings. 

Assumptions: Solar Feed-in-Tariff of 12 cents/kWh; 50% of generated solar is consumed in the home; solar production of 3.6 kWh daily per kW of solar system; CO2 emissions of 1.35 kg per kWh of electricity consumed; average retail electricity price of 27 cents/kWh. This calculator should only be used as an indicative guide.
