Getting solar

If you want to generate electricity with solar on your own property, here’s how to get started, what to expect and what your responsibilities are.

Speak to your energy retailer

Your energy retailer is your first point-of-call when it comes to using electricity or generating it back into the grid. They can explain how your tariff will change.

Choose a solar retailer/installer

Handy tip: the Clean Energy Council (CEC) has lists of accredited solar retailers and installers. Hire one who can install your system and talk to us about your needs.

Use the CEC website to find help setting up your solar generation.
