Unlock your solar energy potential
If you’re looking for a simple, easy way to get into solar, why not let Nectr do all the work while you get all the benefit.
With the Nectr Home Solar energy plan, we’ll organise for a CEC-approved solar retailer to design and install a 6.6 kW PV system on your roof, then bundle it with competitive electricity rates for the next 7 years. At no upfront cost. And after 7 years, the system’s yours for free.*

The details of Nectr Home Solar.
This energy plan is only available if you meet the following criteria:
- Must live in the NSW Ausgrid network area
- Must have a minimum household daily average usage of 17 kWh
- Are a homeowner and occupier (ideally for at least 6 months)
- Do not currently have solar or battery systems installed
- No one at home is dependent on life support
Before we can install the solar PV system, the following preconditions need to be met:
- We are satisfied you meet our eligibility requirements
- You have secured any local council, home loan lender and other third-party approvals required for the solar PV system to be installed; and
- We are satisfied we can install the system at your premises.
If a Precondition is not met, then we may terminate the Agreement and discuss what other Nectr electricity plans may better suit your needs.
We don’t plan to change your energy plan pricing during the 7-year contract term.
The only reason we would be able to vary your electricity prices is where the costs we incur in selling you electricity varies or we expect they will, but only where that cost variation arises from a future Change in Law. Some examples of previous Change in Law events include the introduction of a carbon tax and a new government levy to support ambulance services. We would provide you with advance notice of any variation in your electricity prices.
If you decide to exit the contract early, you must pay the System Buyout Price. You will then own the System.
The Initial Buyout Price is $4,960, which reflects the system’s initial value.
The System Buyout Price then decreases uniformly each day before reaching $0 on the day your contract ends at 7 years.
Some reasons for early exit include:
- You sell or vacate your premises;
- You interfere with the system operation and it can’t produce for 90 days; or
- You fail to pay three bills by their due date in any 12-month period
Other key fees with the electricity plan include:
De-installation fee: $1,000
This fee covers our costs for removing the system from your roof. It applies if: (1) you require us to remove and then reinstall the system to allow for renovations or other work to your roof; or (2) we start to install the system, but encounter a Latent Condition and rectifying that condition would substantially delay or increase the installation cost. A Latent Condition means a physical condition at your Premises and its near surrounds, which couldn’t have been reasonably foreseen.
Call out fee: $200
This fee covers our costs for attending your Premises to investigate any damage you notify us about that you believe we caused during the system installation. This fee only applies if we determine the damage was not caused by us during the Installation Works.
Sometimes Nectr may need to charge your account additional fees. These fees are set by Ausgrid, your Local Energy Network Distributor and charged to Nectr on your behalf. A list of these fees is available here
A Basic Plan Information Document (BPID) is available upon request. A BPID is an information sheet that contains all the key details of a plan. Please contact Customer Care for more information.
