Free Solar

The Free Solar solution is designed to share the solar benefits between the owner-occupier whose home the solar system is installed on and Stoddart Group who paid for it.

Stoddart Group will install a solar system, including 6.5kW of solar panels and a 5kW inverter, free of charge during construction. If you are a Powershop customer, you can access discounted solar power from the system, without adding to the overall build cost of your new home. After 60 months, Stoddart Group will transfer the ownership of the solar system to you.

Accessing the solar energy is as simple as signing up your regular electricity account with Powershop. Any power that you use that comes from the solar system will be charged at a discounted rate on your monthly power bill. Any grid usage is also included on the same bill. You can switch to another electricity retailer at any time. However, if you do switch to another electricity retailer, you will no longer have access to discounted energy from the solar system.


The benefits for owner-occupiers:

Option to purchase discounted power from your roof through Powershop

Save on your electricity bill from the day you move in.

Free 6.5kw solar system after 60 months

Go solar with zero capital up front.

Purchase the system outright at any time before the 60 month term is completed.
No repayments for the solar system or lock in energy contracts for the discounted solar power.

Your property is equipped with a solar system and you have the option to purchase the power it produces at a discounted rate through Powershop. Accessing the solar energy is as simple as signing up your regular electricity account with Powershop. Any power that you use that comes from the solar system will be charged at a discounted rate on your monthly power bill.
To access the free solar system, you must contact the Stoddart Group prior to construction with a Stoddart approved builder.
The StoddartPay agreement between you and Stoddart Group can be transferred to the next owner by completing a StoddartPay novation form. The new owner would have access to the discounted power option until the 60 month term is complete, but has no obligation to use it. The solar system is then transferred from Stoddart Group into the new owner’s name at the end of the term. Alternatively, the solar panels can be purchased outright.

To use the solar generated from the system and access the discounted rate, you must be a Powershop customer. As Stoddart Group own the solar panels for the first 60 months, if you decide to go with another electricity retailer the meter configuration will be changed so that all electricity created by the solar system is exported directly to the grid. You will no longer have access to the energy produced from the solar system.
