Solar Assistance can help you fund your own solar panel system on your farm or rural small business, from a minimum 10kW in size up to 100kW. We’ll design and install the system for you, reducing the upfront cost by between $2,500 and $25,000 (excl GST), depending on its size. For every kW of solar you install, you’ll get a discount of $250 (excl GST). Once your system is up and running, the solar energy it generates won’t cost you anything; however other associated costs such as maintenance will still apply.
Please note, this assistance package is available to 30 June 2021, unless extended or fully subscribed.
Solar Assistance is intended for customers who are able to purchase the subsidised solar system upfront. You should make your own enquiries and seek independent legal advice as to whether Solar Assistance is appropriate for you and your financial circumstances.
A site inspection is required to determine site suitability, and we will discuss with you what size system is appropriate for your circumstances. You may be required, at your cost, to ensure that your premises are suitable for the solar system.
#Small Business Entity (ATO definition): You are a small business entity if you are carrying on a business with less than $10 million aggregated turnover. When we say 'you' we mean the individual, partnership, company or trust that runs the business.
