Going solar has never been easier or more affordable - read on for more information about installing solar panels in Hobart!
The beautiful city of Hobart is located in the Southeast of Tasmania on the estuary of the Derwent River and is Australia’s second oldest capital city after Sydney, NSW. The Hobart City Council has taken an active role in the promotion of sustainable and renewable energy as well as providing guidance and incentives for energy efficient home design. It serves as the financial and administrative heart of Tasmania and residents of Hobart enjoy a daily average of 5.9 hours of sunlight throughout the year and a massive 15.2 hours of sunlight during the summer solstice - the longest day of any Australian city!
There are a number of factors that need to be taken into consideration when calculating solar panel output - these include available sunlight hours, the latitude of the installation, the system orientation, whether shading will play a factor at your home and the solar panel tilt angle. Based on the available sunlight hours, a typical solar power installation in Hobart will produce roughly 3.5kWh of electricity per kW of installed capacity on average (the system will produce you more in summer when daylight hours are longer). One of our top rated installers will be more then happy to run through energy calculations with you to determine exactly how much installing solar panels will save you at your home.
Solar power systems installed in Hobart will receive the Australian Government solar rebate in the form of Small Scale Technology Energy Certificates (STC’s). These STC’s are usually claimed by your chosen solar power installer on your behalf and then offset against the cost of your solar PV system as an upfront discount on the total system price.
In Hobart and the rest of Tasmania, this upfront solar rebate can save you up to 50% on the cost of installing a solar power system. Our top rated solar installers will provide you with full details of this upfront discount when you request a solar quote comparison.
In addition to the upfront solar rebate, residents in Tasmania are entitled to a 5.5c/kWh feed in tariff. This feed in tariff means that you are paid for the excess electricity you don’t use from your solar system. As the rate is lower then the rate you purchase electricity at, we recommend that you try and use as much of your electricity needs as possible during daylight hours when your solar system is producing electricity. This will ensure that you maximise the value from your solar investment.

I was contacted by 3 local solar companies who were professional and answered our questions. Shading was a bit of an issue at our property so we have installed a mirco-inverter system as suggested. Thank you again for providing your service.
