WHY GO SOLAR ?

"GO SOLAR AND SAVE !!!" has become a cliche, but its a cliche for a very good reason.  Installing a Solar Power System can reduce the average cost of each Kilowatt Hour (kWh) of electricity you use to as little as 6c over the working life of the system.  How much are you paying for each kWh - check your bill - is it 25c ? 33c ?  Paying 6c would be a massive saving.  And while you are saving money, you can have the added satisfaction of knowing you are doing your bit to like more sustainably and save the planet.

ARE THERE GOVERNMENT FINANCIAL INCENTIVES ?   YES !

1)  STCs ("Small-scale Technology Certificates") =>  These provide an UPFRONT DISCOUNT

Your Solar Retailer (hopefully BREAZE !!!) will give you a discount in exhange for STCs that are a tradeable represent the renewable energy generated by your system.

STCs are available for Solar Power Systems up to 100kW for Homes, Schools, Comminity Groups and Businesses.

2) Feed-in Tariff - Payoff your system over its working life by selling power back to the electricity grid

Any excess electricity that your system generates but you do no use is exported to the Electricity Grid.  Under Victorian Government legislation, retailers are required to offer you credits for this electrcity that use can use to pay your bills. See the Victorian Department of Primary Industries (DPI) Website for the latest up-to-date rules regarding eligibility for Feed-in Tariffs.  

We can do the math for you to work about how much of the electricity you produce will be used on site and how much exported back to the grid ... and thereby estimate the savings for you ...


DOES IT STILL MAKE SENSE TO GO SOLAR AT HOME ?breaze eleanor advert

Many people have heard that Government Incentives for installing Solar Power have been cut back ... and assume mistakenly that is it no longer worth going solar.   **BUT** at the same time that incentives have been reduced, the upfront price of Solar Power Systems also been reduced.  Going solar still makes sense.  However, with the Feed-in Tariff reduced to 8c per kWh (less than you pay to import electricity) it is now very important to correctly size a system to meet your need for electricity.  This is what a local business like BREAZE Energy Solutions exists to do.  We will work with you to design a system that is right for your usage pattern to maximize your return of investment ... the more money you save going solar, the more spare cash you will have to do all the other things you can do to retrofit your house to be more energy efficient (and more comfortable) like draft-proofing and double-glazing.

daylesford primary school 15kwCome to one of our Free "Going Solar" Info Sessions.  See our Events Calendar for future presentations.  Or even better, ask to get a group of 10 or more people at your Community Group or Sports Club together and arrange a time for us to come to you and give a Free "Going Solar" Info Session.  Send enquiries to  

QUALITY, LOCAL SUPPORT AND HONEST ADVICE SOUND GREAT ... AND PART OF ME WOULD LIKE TO MAKE AN INFORMED BUYING DECISION ... BUT WHAT I REALLY TRULY WANT IS A SOLAR POWER SYSTEM AT AN ** ABSURDLY-LOW BARGAIN-BASEMENT ** PRICE !

We want to see the uptake of renewable energy technology such as Solar Electricity spread throughout the community.  We want good news story to follow good news story.  For this reason we are very wary of low-cost ** LOW-QUALITY ** panels that are made to meet a low upfront price point but not to last the 20 to 30 years that a system owner should rightfully expect from their system.   We have had trouble with some cheap gear that we sourced to meet demand for lower prices.  We wont make that mistake again.  We fear that the failure of low quality systems will unjustly damage the reputation of solar electricity.  You wouldn't be surprised if an MP3 or DVD player from a $2 Shop failed within a year ... so why would you be surprised if Solar Panels sold at $2 Shop prices failed well before they should ?!?   We prefer quality German and Australian-made equipment backed by warranties from established companies with brands to protect.  We can offer a range of equipment to suit different budgets ... but if you want to pay an ABSURDLY LOW  price, you might be better approaching another supplier who will tell you whatever you want to believe ... taking your name of the Telemarketing "Do Not Call" List might be a good start ...
