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.
