Solar PV price check – October

The end of the solar feed-in tariff saw PV system prices drop in Adelaide while, for average sized systems, prices went up in Brisbane and Melbourne.

Solar PV system prices dropped notably in Adelaide between September and October, likely as a result of installers addressing new realities in light of the closure of South Australia’s transitional feed-in tariff to new applicants. Average system prices in Perth also dropped markedly, with all of the least expensive systems (of all sizes 1.5kW-5kW) in the country being found there. Prices appear to have shot up substantially in Tasmania, but the always-small data set means that figures are prone to fluctuation. In a first, five out of the seven areas included in the data (Perth, Sydney, the ACT, Tasmania, and Adelaide) had solar leasing deals on offer.
