Solar in Adelaide

Adelaide receives an average of 7 hours of sunlight every day^ which is good news for solar owners. As a result, an unshaded north-facing 5kW solar system in Adelaide can generate around 7,530 kWh of electricity every year*. Most solar households use about half of the energy generated by their PV panels. So, they can ‘export’ unused solar energy into the grid and earn a feed-in tariff (FIT) payment. Solar owners in Adelaide could be receiving hundreds of dollars every year in feed-in credits, saving even more money on their power bills. Consequently, it can well worth it for solar owners to shop around for a better deal.

A watch out when comparing solar feed-in tariffs in Adelaide

A great solar feed-in tariff is important. However, to ensure you find the best deal, you also need to consider the usage rates and supply charges. Be aware that bigger feed-in tariffs often come with bigger usage and supply charges. So, you’ll want to do the math to see what works out cheapest for you. WATTever’s comprehensive electricity comparison makes it easy to get it right. Your tailored comparison is calculated using your unique solar export and grid energy use to help you find the best deal.
