Can I get solar power?

EnergyAustralia has a full solar power offering, from installation of solar panels, inverters and battery storage, all the way through to offering generous feed-in tariffs.

EnergyAustralia's solar power systems come in a range of options to suit a variety of budgets:

  • Premium. Using LG NeON 2 panels and Enphase micro-inverters.
  • Smart (option 1). Trina Honey M Plus Panels and Enphase micro-inverters.
  • Smart (option 2). Jinko solar panels and Enphase micro-inverters.
  • Saver (option 1). Trina Honey M Plus Panels and Zeversolar string inverter.
  • Saver (option 2). Jinko solar panels and Zeversolar string inverter.

Each system is designed to meet your household's usage needs and budget, with options to purchase the system on a five-year interest-free payment solution through HSBC, or on your Visa or Mastercard.

For those wanting an even more complete system, EnergyAustralia offers two solar battery solutions as well.

  • Tesla Powerwall. 13.5kWh energy storage capacity, plus flexible mounting options and over-the-air software updates.
  • Redback Smart Hybrid Inverter with LG Chem battery. Features flexible battery capacity between 3.3kWh and 13kWh and the ability to schedule and control certain hardwired appliances, like a pool pump or hot water system.

Once a solar system is installed, EnergyAustralia offers a generous feed-in tariff for electricity fed back into the grid from your solar panels. In Victoria, customers have an option of a variable feed-in tariff, which sees the rate depending on whether it's fed in during peak, off-peak or shoulder time periods.

Can I get GreenPower?

EnergyAustralia's PureEnergy program is a GreenPower accredited program that allows customers to pay to source their electricity from renewable sources.

Residential customers can choose to have 10%, 20% or 100% of their energy sourced from renewable sources like solar, wind, hydro and biomass.

In addition to GreenPower, EnergyAustralia offers to completely offset the carbon emissions of its energy customers after they've held an active account for six months at no additional cost.
