Why did my electricity bill increase after solar installation?
We met several cases about the increase in the electricity bill after solar installation. Firstly, the solar system won't consume the electricity, even if the system stop working, the bill will remain unchanged. If the electricity bill increased, it could due to one of the following two reasons:
(1) The dramatical increase in electricity usage. You can compare the usages between the before installation bill and after installation bill.
(2) The energy retailer changed the electricity plan. Some company's solar plan has a much lower discount on the electricity unit price, it could cause an increase in the electricity bill.
If you meet any issue about the electricity bill, you can send us the before installation bill and after installation bill to compare.
You can also register Victoria Energy Compare to get a better due. The website is: https://compare.energy.vic.gov.au/
