$0 deposit. Solar savings - guaranteed.

Get excited!

Our Solar Savings Guarantee is available exclusively to our existing electricity customers when they buy an Origin solar system. Pay for your system upfront or pay it off monthly on a $0 deposit* interest-free payment plan over 24 months. Read all about it.

Here's how it works

Once you've chosen your solar system, we’ll calculate your savings guarantee. It’s the amount we think you’ll save over the next two years with solar. When we say ‘save’, we mean what you pay for electricity with solar, compared to what you’d pay without solar on our current no-discount Origin Basic plan. If you don’t reach your savings guarantee after two years, we’ll give you the difference as a credit on your bill.

After your system is up and running, we'll send you monthly updates by email to see how you're tracking.

Our Solar Boost Plus plan

After your solar system is installed, you’ll need to take up and stay on our Solar Boost Plus plan for two years.  This will help make sure you're saving as much as possible, because it’s our highest feed-in tariff rate . Solar Boost Plus is an exclusive plan available only to households who’ve purchased a solar system up to 10kW through us. 

Take a look at the feed-in tariff rates available in South Australia. (Looking for elsewhere? Our Solar Savings Guarantee is also available in New South Wales and Queensland.)

How we see if you've hit your target

At the end of two years, we'll calculate your total savings. By this, we mean what you paid for electricity with solar, compared to what you’d pay without solar on our current no-discount Origin Basic plan. We add up:

  • The amount you save by using your own solar energy, which we work out assuming you would have paid for that amount of energy at our current Basic usage rates (which aren’t discounted) 
  • The amount we pay you for exporting solar energy to the grid, via feed in tariffs

These two combined are your total savings.

^ Guaranteed savings estimate: Actual savings guarantee may vary according to your location, the direction, pitch or angle of your roof, or any shading or obstruction of your property. Estimates above are indicative only, and are based on the amount we estimate you will save on your electricity usage charges on the Solar Boost Plus Energy Plan over 24 months, when compared to what you would have paid for the same usage under our published Origin Basic charges. The above estimates assume a tilted system, facing North under the following specifications: Advantage – 3.3 kW, Premium – 3.3 kW.

A savings guarantee takes out the guess work, so you can feel more confident about the return on investment of a solar system. 

Because we already supply your electricity, we’re able to put all the pieces together.

We can see how much energy you’re using from the grid right now, compared to how much solar you'll be generating and exporting after your new system is installed. 

At Origin, we've put more solar on Australian rooftops than any other energy company. With our knowledge and expertise, you can count on us help you reach your savings target.

We'll send you monthly updates to let you know how you're tracking towards your savings target. If it seems like you're not saving as much as you expected, don't despair!

Naturally, as the sun is the star of the show here, you'll produce less solar and therefore less savings when the sun isn't shining as much. Similarly, in the summer when the sun's out more, you'll be generating more solar power.

That’s why it’s important to wait for the end of the agreement, when we even out your savings over the last 24 months to see if you've hit your target. That way, the sunny months can make up for the gloomy ones, and you'll have a more accurate view on what you've actually saved in total.

At the end of the 24 months, we’ll credit your electricity bill (within 30 days) with any difference between your savings target and your actual savings.

Absolutely. We love it when our customers save, and if you make the most of your solar, you could even save even more than we predicted. Here's a few top tips to maximise your solar:

  • Add timers to appliances like washing machines or dishwashers, so they run their cycles during daylight hours when your solar is producing energy
  • Use our energy-saving tips to cut down on your night-time energy usage

We'll send you an email report which contains key information about your solar system. This will include your savings for the month and your total savings to date (compared to our current Origin Basic rates), how well your system is performing, and heaps of other useful data.
