Household type gives an indication of the percentage of the solar energy generated that you consume. This ensures a significantly more accurate solar calculation. Always ensure generation figures quoted match your region.

The charge rate is the amount you pay for your electricity per kWh

Feed-in Tariff is the amount your electricity retailer will pay you for the solar electricity you don’t use and feed back to the grid. Leave at default if unsure.

Your potential savings will be impacted by the size of your system. The average size system installed in 2018 by Essential Solar was 6 kW.

The appropriate system for your home will depend on a number of factors. These factors include the available roof space, the amount of energy you use, the amount you wish to spend upfront and your expected payback period. No solar calculator is able to provide this level of detail.
