Information for Tenants

Congratulations! You’re new home is equipped with Gigawatt Project managed power. This means you will save money by purchasing some of the power you use from the solar system installed on the premises.

Power from your solar system should always be cheaper than power from your grid connected electricity company. Find out more in the FAQ’s below.

Will I still get a power bill from my electricity company?

Yes. You still need to have a connection with a power company like you normally would, and you’ll get a bill from them regularly – but you’ll notice a big reduction straight away!

How much will I pay for solar?

You’ll notice an agreed fee per Kw/h in the special conditions of your lease, this is the rate you’ll pay. Your landlord will always charge you less than an electricity company.

How do I pay?

We’ll email you an invoice every month to your nominated email address, which will have payment account details attached.

What if I don’t pay on time?

If your payment is overdue, you’ll be contacted to get it sorted. You may be charged a late fee if your payment is more than 14 days overdue. Please read our terms of service at www. gigawattproject.com/terms

What happens to exported energy?

You’ll notice an agreed Feed in Tariff fee per Kw/h in the special conditions of your lease. This is amount per Kw/h of feed-in tariff that your landlord will recoup from you. Don’t worry, the Kw/h fee will always be less than what the power company is crediting you for, so you’ll always get to keep the difference!

 

What if the system doesn’t save the tenant money?

If the tenant finds a KwH rate that is below the SmartEarner rate, the tenant can supply a bill as proof, and the SmartEarner rate adjusted to be a discount.

This is a rare situation, as traditional retail energy prices continue to rise.

How long does the system take to pay off?

This depends on how much energy your tenants use over the life of the system, usually it’s less than 5 years, and if the returns are funneled into your mortgage, cuts 3 years off the average home loan.
