We moved from Brisbane to Hervey Bay in March of 2016 and had to go with Ergon as this is the only supplier of Electricity in The Wide Bay.
In October we decided to install Solar as our fist Bill was astronomical over $500 for the two of us which included a Pensioners discount. We received a good quote from a local electrician and our 22 Panels were installed at the end of November. We received instruction from our electrician that the system should not be turned on until inspection by Ergon and installation of the new metre to feed our excess back into the grid.
Well here we are January 9th and Ergon have advised me that a crew will be out to inspect on the 17th January nearly six weeks after the installation. The reason for such a delay." We are very busy in your area" So we are looking forward to the 17th and a charge of $400 to install the new metre. I’ve lost that much feeding what we have generated back into the grid.
In Brisbane it was all completed the same day!!
