Many Australians would love the luxury of having solar panels installed on their homes but what holds many of us back is the initial installation that can be very costly.
Thanks to a little-known government program called Small-scale Renewable Energy System (SRES), many families are now able to deduct a high percentage of the cost of installing solar panels.
Depending on your area, you may be able to put $0 down for the installation based on the upfront costs.
Whats The Catch?
That’s the best part about this program, there isn’t any. What helps to make sense of this whole thing, is coming to the understanding that the government wants you to go solar for these reasons:
• It produces electricity in a renewable way that doesn’t damage the earth.
• You lessen your carbon footprint
• You gain independence from fossil fuels
• You reap financial rewards
Over time, your solar system will save you money by reducing or even eliminating your monthly electrical bill. In some months you may even show a profit by selling back power to the grid. Take a look at the picture below to see what your new bill could look like.
High Stakes, Huge Opportunity
What’s at stake is nothing less than our basic rights to life, health, choice and freedom itself. When finally understood, this program is truly a great opportunity to claim power back into the hands of the people.

Keep rebate expiration periods in mind. Not all programs are ongoing for years at a time. Some have cut-off dates; you must have your system installed and functioning before the deadline in order to qualify for rebates.
