About solar energy
Solar (or solar
photovoltaic) energy is energy received by the earth from the sun
and converted into electricity using technology such as
photovoltaic (PV) panels on rooftops. Solar is viewed as a clean,
low cost renewable energy source.

The solar installation process for UE customers
Contact an electricity retailer to discuss pricing (tariff)
options. It is important to note there may be costs associated if a
bi-directional meter exchange is required. Please request further
information from your retailer.
Contact a registered solar panels provider to organise panel
installation. A list of accredited installers can be found on the
Clean Energy Council website.
Following installation of your panels, there are two forms you
need to fill out.
Form 1 – contact us and fill out the
Photovoltaic (solar) generator connection form.
Form 2 – contact your retailer and fill out a
request for a solar compatible/bi-directional meter and confirm
your new tariff agreement.
Following receipt and processing of both forms, we will progress
the installation of your new meter within 25 business days.
