FAQ's

What is the process for installation, and how long does it typically take?

The installation process primarily involves securing approval from your electricity distributor and provider for the solar meter application paperwork. Typically, it takes 3-4 weeks to gain approval and complete the installation at your property.


Before installation, several steps must be completed, including:

 

  • A site inspection conducted by one of our Clean Energy Council (CEC) accredited installers.

  • The installer designs the system and obtains approval from the local authority.

  • Once permission to connect the PV system to the grid is obtained, we will schedule an installation date, and our team will promptly proceed with the setup.

What is the payback time for solar?

The time it takes to recoup your investment in solar depends on various factors, including the system size, its cost, power production, and your energy usage patterns. Your Flux installer can help you crunch the numbers to estimate your payback period.
 

As a rough guide, in New South Wales, a 6.6kW system typically generates around 9,500kWh per year, based on Clean Energy Council (CEC) guidelines. If you consume 65% of the generated power at a rate of 34 cents per kWh and export the remainder to the grid at a feed-in tariff of 12 cents per kWh, the system could potentially save you $1000+ annually.

What is an STC (Government incentive to install solar)?

The Small Scale Technology Certificate (STC) Program, initiated by the Australian federal government, aims to assist residential homeowners in reducing the cost of solar panel installation through a solar rebate. Upon obtaining approval from their electricity distributor and provider in accordance with the Clean Energy Council (CEC) guidelines, homeowners can proceed with installing the solar system. The number of STCs generated is dependant on kW and various other factors.
