TTKD member and the director of Brisbane Energy Audits Ian Gittus has set up a bulk buying group for solar power (solar PV) and solar hot water.
By bulking buying the solar panels and securing a top price for the RECs the buying group is able to offer solar systems for thousands of dollars cheaper than leading solar companies. (For a full explanation of RECs and the new federal government solar credits scheme see here).
However this price cannot be maintained due to the falling price of RECs, to get the deal applications must be in by Friday Nov 6th. On a positive note by purchasing through the local group the solar panels should be installed by early December, months quicker than the current industry average.
A range of solar PV systems from 1.5kW to 5kW are available. The package includes the 180 watt monocrystalline solar panels, a top quality inverter with 5 or 10 year warranty and standard installation.
Prices start from $3600 for a 1.5 kW solar PV system.
