I’m hoping the wise people that read and comment on the site can explain the whole Solar Energy and RECS thing for me
Basically I’m going to build a house and have been told that I can get paid or reduce my electricity bill if I connect up solar power and feed it back to the grid.
I think I understand that part and that I get $0.50 for every kwh I produce (if I opt into the ACT Governments Scheme for 20 years) but what I don’t understand at all is the RECS part of all of this
Are these something that I need to care or worry about? Is it better to keep them myself or let the company I purchase the equipment off handle them?
Do I keep generating RECS or are they a 1 off thing I get when installing the unit?
The flyer I have for a particular company says that they have discounted the solar units on the assumption that I hand over the RECS I generate to them
And while I think of it if I sign up for the ACT Governments scheme to get the $0.50 do I have to be a customer of ACTEWAGL?
Any help would be greatly appreciated
