Solar Savings Calculator
This calculator is designed to help you estimate your savings and return on investment when deciding to purchase solar.
The main varying factor is how much of the solar energy you will use during the day, and how much will go back into the grid. With a premium product at the right price, even if your daytime usage is relatively low, your savings can still be very attractive and offer a great return.
Most of our residential clients who aren’t home much during the day find they can adapt their energy consumption to achieve 50% usage and upwards; if you choose to install batteries then you can achieve 80-100% usage of solar energy, as this will be offsetting night time usage also.
With commercial clients, even without batteries the solar consumption is typically between 80 and 100%.
To use the calculator, enter your system details, price of power per kWh and feed-in tariff below, and the calculator will automatically show you the energy produced and potential savings through solar.
If you don’t know the price of the system, we recommend you use $1000 per kW as an estimate. Top-of-the-range systems are likely to cost more, and more entry level systems will be less, but this is a simple formula if you haven’t yet received your quote.

If you are unsure of your price of power and feed in tariff you can use the default figures below as an estimate.
