Hunter Central Coast Solar Power Packages

Farming the Sun is excited to announce its first ever community bulk-buy of solar power systems for the greater Hunter Central Coast region!

The solar power bulk-buy program is an extension of our collaboration with Eco Energy & Solar Solutions.

We are offering a range of high quality, Tier 1 solar power systems which have been substantially discounted (up to 33% below regular retail!) as a benefit of the bulk-buying.

The bulk-buy program is open to residents, businesses and farms throughout the greater Hunter Central Coast and includes the Central Coast, Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Maitland, Gloucester, Dungog, Port Stephens, Cessnock, Singleton, Muswellbrook and Upper Hunter regions.

The purpose of the solar power bulk-buy is to significantly increase the understanding, affordability and take-up of solar energy by making available a discounted bulk offering of high quality, solar power systems ~ supplied by solar specialist Eco Energy & Solar Solutions, who have expanded their operations to include the greater Hunter Central Coast region.

“We have coordinated the installation of 2.4MW of solar power systems to date.

It is exciting to now be launching our first ever community bulk-buy program for the Hunter Central Coast region!”

~ Adam Blakester, Project Director

Farming the Sun has negotiated this collaboration with Eco Energy & Solar Solutions given their demonstrated track record, being a well respected local family owned and operated business (see testimonials), and having the capacity to work at the scale of a community bulk-buy program.

This is Farming the Sun’s sixth solar power bulk-buy program. Like all of our previous bulk-buy programs, it is focused on achieving the best possible discount for high quality solar power systems, installation and warranty support. All of the brands of solar panel and inverters being used for this community bulk-buy are Tier 1 (top 2% of quality) products.

Eco Energy & Solar Solutions have negotiated a very substantial bulk-buy discount ~ of up to 33% better than regular retail prices ~ for high quality solar power systems. The system packages are built using Suntech or JA Solar panels and Fronius or Solar Edge inverters. All of the system options can be upgraded to incorporate battery storage ~ either now or in the future.

Up to 33% better than regular retail prices!

The solar power bulk-buy is commencing to coincide with several significant developments:

  • Electricity prices are being significantly increased, by around 50% in the last five years alone
  • Significant increases in feed-in-tariffs for solar power exports
  • Small business accelerated asset write-off (pre 30 June 2018)
  • Small scale technology (renewable energy) certificates being phased out (ending 1 January 2030)
  • Preparedness for small-scale battery storage technology
  • Growing community concerns about the environmental impacts of coal mining on water, farming, biodiversity, climate and air quality
  • Development of the utility renewable energy sector, with large-scale wind and solar projects already being the largest capital infrastructure projects in the region’s history.

Both the Suntech and JA Solar panels have a 12 years workmanship and 25 years performance warranty.
