With hot weather on the way and energy prices continuing to rise, it’s time to install solar panels and save hundreds of dollars a year in energy bills.

And you can now buy quality solar panels from a locally-based company that has been operating in Canberra since 2004 and have them installed by reliable, accredited installers.

Vac to the Future now sells solar systems and the good news is that prices have never been lower.

Add in the Federal Government rebate scheme, which helps with the upfront cost, and ActewAGL’s Solar Buyback scheme, which credits you for solar energy you generate, and you’ll find your system pays for itself in less than four years.

A 1.5kw system (eight panels and an inverter) is just $1490 ($1850 including ACTPLA and ActewAGL fees).

Producing 2354kw a year according to the Clean Energy Council (, you’ll save more than $400 annually in energy bills.

Solar panels help to increase your energy efficiency and decrease your carbon emissions. They also add value to your house.

And it’s never been easier to get started because Vac to the Future does it all for you.

They sell the solar panels (with a 25-year performance warranty) then install them using accredited installers, who give you a rundown on how the solar panel system operates when they’re done.

Vac to the Future also assists you with all the paperwork you need to claim back your federal government rebate and set you up on ActewAGL’s Solar Buyback scheme.

Getting started is as simple as calling them on 1300 551 567.

They will come and have a look at your roof and see what requirements you need to install a solar system and let you know if you need to do anything before they install the system.

On accepting the quote, the installation is carried out within three to five weeks.

ActewAGL then connects the new solar meter and ACTPLA inspects the job to confirm it’s completed to Australian standards.

After that you can switch on your solar system and start saving.

But the job doesn’t end there for Vac to the Future. Customer satisfaction is very important.

Installing the solar system is just the first step in developing an ongoing, long-term relationship that will continue well after the end of the 12-month labour warranty. Vac to the Future is always there to answer your questions and can maintain your system for a minimal, ongoing cost.

Give them a call on 1300 551 567 and see how easy it is to secure your long-term energy needs.

Please note – the ACTEW buy back scheme is NOT legislated, therefore not guaranteed for any period of time. As oppose to the ACT FIT which is legislated and guaranteed for 20 years (therefore ACTEW pass on the costs of this), ACTEW can terminate the 1:1 buy back scheme at any time.
