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.

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.
