More than in any other state or territory, people in South Australia can’t help but crow about the money they are saving from installing a home solar system.
According to Canstar Blue research, around 37 per cent of South Australians have admitted to boasting about their lower energy bills to anyone who will listen.
As it happens, they also have the lowest bills, with the average credit on their quarterly bills sitting at $280. In Queensland, the average saving is $271 a quarter, $169 in Victoria and $125 in NSW.
On average, the solar credit reported by customers on their quarterly power bills is $236.
But despite 27 per cent of Australians feeling chuffed enough with these savings to brag about them, only 35 per cent of solar customers surveyed were happy with their current solar feed-in tariff (FiT) rates.
