Solar rooftop panels

Reduce your energy bills and environmental impact by installing solar panels on your roof.

We partner with the local government initiative Solar Savers to make installing solar easier for local homeowners, renters, landlords and business owners.

For a limited time, Solar Savers is offering households a $500 discount off the price of solar systems or battery installation. Residents who hold a Pensioner Concession Card will be prioritised for the discount.

You can find more information about solar, batteries, rebates on the Solar Savers website

Check if you need any permits before installing solar panels by reading our Install solar panels guide.

Energy assessments

An energy assessment will tell you:

  • where you can save money on energy bills
  • what upgrades could help you reduce your emissions.

The Australian Energy Foundation program finished on 31 August 2022. We are looking for alternative ways to deliver this service.

Track your energy use

You can keep track of your energy use at home, work or school by using:

  • a home energy meter
  • a thermal imaging camera.
