Queensland is known as ‘The Sunshine State’. Queensland has the sunniest regions in the country and hence, it can be considered one of the best places for solar installations in terms of productivity. More sunshine means more energy, which means more savings in electricity bills. More savings will again result in lesser payback period.

Price of the solar power systems is lowest as compared to the other states as major part of the Queensland falls in STC zones 1 & 2 which means it is entitled to get higher STCs compared to other states or regions. This has a direct impact on your out of pocket solar system price.
These two factors put together makes solar an inevitable choice by Queenslanders. Again, ever rising electricity bills and dramatic reduction of solar system price in the last few years also makes it even more lucrative option to choose solar. It can be considered as a leading state with at least half of the households covered with rooftop solar. Across the country there are 34 suburbs where more than half the homes have rooftop solar out of which Queensland ranks top with 25 suburbs. .

The move to renewable energy is important for Queensland to be able to weather the effects of climate change, bush fires, rising sea levels, floods etc. The expansion of renewable energy in Queensland is backed by the state government, which has a target of 50 per cent of the state’s energy coming from renewable sources by 2030. There is also economic opportunity for Queensland as part of the uptake of solar power, especially rooftop solar, with many of the raw materials such as copper, lead and zinc being mined in the state.
Investing in a solar system for your home or business is really the need of the hour primarily sharing your responsibility towards the environment and also due to a combination of high electricity costs and low system prices.

End Electricity Bills with Smart House Solar
Queensland is known as ‘The Sunshine State’. Queensland has the sunniest regions in the country and hence, it can be considered one of the best places for solar panel installations in terms of productivity. More sunshine means more energy, which means more savings in electricity bills. More savings will again result in lesser payback period.
Again, price of the solar panel systems in Queensland is lowest as compared to the other states as major part of the Queensland falls in STC (Small Scale Technology Certificate) zones 1 & 2 which means it is entitled to get higher STCs compared to other states or regions. This has a direct impact on your out of pocket solar system price.
These reasons put together along with the ever-rising electricity bills makes solar panel system an inevitable choice for Queenslanders. Considering an average lifespan of around 15-20 years, solar panel system is considered a fruitful investment in Queensland in the long run.
As we have seen earlier that a major part of Queensland falls in STC zones 1 & 2, the price of the solar panel system in Queensland is lowest as compared to the other states. However, price in the regional Queensland area will be higher as compared to the metropolitan area of Brisbane as it includes the cost of transportation of goods and travelling cost.
A typical 6.6 kW solar panel system in Brisbane will range anywhere between $3500 – $5000 for a standard metropolitan installation. Standard metro installation comprises of installation done in a metro area on a single storey house with a tin roof. Price of a 6.6kW Solar Power System will vary for regional installations and for installations on a double or multi-storey house or on a house with a tile, decramastic roof. A 6.6kW Solar Power System price will also vary depending on the brand of panels or inverter.
Queensland has abundance of sunshine; hence it is considered as one of the best places for solar panel system installation. Considering an average of 4-5 hours of daily sunshine; a 6.6kW solar power system is expected to generate around 24kW – 26kW per day. Considering an average daily power generation of 24kW in a day and assuming that you pay 25c tariff to your electricity company, a 6.6kW Solar panel system in Queensland can help you to save $6 per day if you consume the entire power generated by the solar system. In this case, your yearly saving will be around $2190. However, in practical scenario the entire power generated by the solar system is not consumed and transferred back to the grid, for which you are entitled to get the benefit of feed in tariff at a rate of around 10c. In such cases, your yearly saving will reduce to the extent the power is not consumed by you and sent back to the electricity grid. In short, if you consume solar power, you save 25c (rate at which you are billed) and if you are not able to consume solar power, you save 10c (feed in tariff rate).
If your property is connected with the electricity grid, you can decide to go for a grid connected solar panel system in Queensland. This type of system helps you to save the electricity cost during the sunshine hours as it uses the electricity generated by the solar power system as against the costlier electricity from the grid. This system comes with solar panels and a conventional inverter connected with your electricity grid. This system works only if the electricity grid is on and stops working in blackouts or grid failure. This solar panel system works best for homes and commercials like offices or sheds where majority of power is consumed during daytime.
If you consume more power during after-hours or your electricity consumption is higher during night, you can go for a hybrid solar panel system in Queensland. A hybrid solar power system provides an option to store the excess unconsumed solar power in a battery which can be used after hours or during night time so that you can minimise your electricity usage from the costlier electricity from the grid. Hybrid solar power system comes with solar panels, a hybrid inverter, and a battery as per your requirement.
In case if your property is not connected with the electricity grid, you can go for off grid or standalone solar panel system in Queensland. This system comes with solar panels and batteries. This system usually proves to be very costly as number of batteries are required to store the power and the cost of batteries is quite high.
Currently, a 6.6kW solar panel system is mostly in demand in Queensland. A 6.6kW Solar Power System is widely accepted and most reliable solar power system for a residential property in Queensland. 6.6kW Solar Power System is suitable for large families or homes with lots of power-hungry appliances. A 6.6kW Solar Power System comes with 22 X 300w solar panels or 20 X 330w solar panels and a 5kW inverter. However, Solar panel system in Queensland also comes in different sizes like 5kW, 10kW, 20kW, so on and so forth depending on the consumption and requirement. Our solar panel system expert will assist in identifying the appropriate system size for you if you are based in Queensland.
