ACCC calls to end Federal Solar Scheme

2019 has been a great year for those that have made the move to solar, with solar systems being more affordable than ever before, though these deals won’t last long! Not only is the government rebate set to reduce on 1st January 2020 by 7% but a new report from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has once again called to end the Federal scheme, which has been providing financial support for rooftop solar systems.

This recommendation, if taken, will lead to huge increases in solar systems across Australia & also increase the risk of consumers purchasing from untrustworthy & unreliable solar providers offering cheap alternative products.

Since 2011 close to 700 solar companies have gone out of business leaving 650,000 Australians with no recourse if their systems fail. This proposal for the Federal scheme will encourage ‘here today, gone tomorrow’ companies to take advantage of Australian’s looking for cheaper solar solutions and we are likely to see this number continue to grow at a dramatic rate.

When purchasing a solar system choosing the right company is as important as choosing a quality solar system that will meet your household requirements. Solar Generation is a division of the Termico Group who have been operating since 1996 and continue to be a trusted WA owned and operated company. Not only are we providing great quality solar systems at affordable prices, we also provide you with the confidence knowing you have purchased from a company that will be around for any ongoing sales support you may require in the future.  

If you are seriously thinking about purchasing a solar system then there has never been a better time. We are currently offering a 6.6kW Tier 1 solar system from $2690, however if the recommendations from the ACCC is taken we could see the price of this system almost double.
