Avoid a New Year's Power Bill Shock

Householders and businesses with solar panels that currently receive a subsidised feed-in tariff of 60 or 20 cents under the NSW Solar Bonus Scheme can expect a power bill shock in the New Year unless they act now.

Before the NSW Solar Bonus Scheme ends on 31 December 2016, householders and businesses should investigate the metering and other product options available to ensure they are getting the most out of their renewable energy system.

Moree householders and business operators are encouraged to attend a workshop on 12 December 2016 to learn what steps they need to take to get the best deal to maximise benefits and the ways to become more energy efficient to minimise power bills.

Before the Solar Bonus Scheme ends on 31 December 2016, those households receiving the feed-in tariff will need to:

A) consider if they need to change the type of meter at their premises –speak to your electricity retailer to assess your options

B) ask about the best power tariffs and contract details, and compare it to other energy providers

C) sign up before 1 January 2017 otherwise be prepared for a higher electricity bill.

If this sounds confusing then come along to the Moree workshop where independent energy experts will provide information on how the changes to the feed-in tariff will affect residents and business owners and the steps they need to take in the wake of the bonus scheme closure.

The workshop will help residents and property owners understand the different metering arrangements and benefits, emerging technologies to consider, including battery storage and electricity monitoring devices.

The Moree Workshop is on Monday 12 December from 5.30pm and in the Banquet Hall (on the north side of the Memorial Hall) Balo Street, Moree and bookings are essential through www.energyopportunityworkshops.eventbrite.com.au
