*Solar Power Savings Calculations are based on:

  • 100% of solar-generated electricity being used within the property
  • The value of savings from Feed-in Tariffs are not factored into this calculation as Chromagen recommends minimising "Feed in" to the grid.
    For more information on Feed-in-Tariffs click here
  • Solar generation value based on CEC GC Design Guidelines, PV array 1kW facing true North & a tilt angle of 20°C. Using an average inverter / wiring efficiency of 0.92 and long term irradiation / temperature data from the Australian Solar Radiation Data Handbook.
  • Please note that the information provided in this guide is for illustration purposes only. Savings can differ based on where you live (relevant Feed In Tariffs) and the actual site conditions at your home.
  • The electricity cost is the average cost for your metering.
