It’s the solar dream: getting a zero dollar electricity bill.

If you’re on a premium feed-in tariff, it’s likely you’re already well on your way to achieving this.

If you’re on a standard feed-in tariff, it can be a bit harder to reach a zero dollar electricity bill. So we’ve put together a guide to never having to pay for power again with a standard feed-in tariff.

  1. Have the right sized solar system for your household
  2. Have a well-insulated, energy efficient house
  3. Install smart appliances
