A 6.6kW solar system has become a popular choice for many homeowners in Melbourne. You can benefit from the lowest prices historically.
And there are still government subsidies and feed-in tariffs that make a new residential solar installation a smart investment. We have the 6.6kW solar system Melbourne residents can rely on to deliver high-quality green energy consistently year-round!
Why choose a 6.6kW solar system?
A 6.6kW solar system gives you the biggest bang for your buck! With a reasonable feed-in tariff, say a minimum of 10c/kWh, a 6.6kW solar system gives you a better-than-average return.
Oversizing a solar system What does oversizing mean
Oversizing is when you install more solar panel capacity than the nominal rating of the solar inverter installed. For example, a 6.6kW solar system using a 5kW solar inverter. It’s safe and common practice in Australia.
Why oversize? Solar rebates in Australia are based on the overall capacity of the solar panels installed – not the rating of the solar inverter.
So it allows you to get the maximum subsidy (rebate) possible.
How much space do I need for a 6.6kW solar system?
A typical solar panel measures 1.8m × 1m, so you’ll need an area of around 32 square metres. The brand and model of panel, and its rating, will affect the overall area needed.
How many solar panels do I need for a 6.6kW system?
Again, it depends on the brand and model of panel. But taking our 370-watt panels as an example, you will need 18 panels in your 6.6kW solar system.

Payback Period on a 6.6kw Solar System
With a 6.6kW solar system, expect the payback period to be 4-5 years. This assumes you have a good level of self-consumption (around 70-75%) to optimise the solar electricity generated by your system.
And there’s more good news! If you pay cash or use low-cost solar finance for the installation, you can also expect to be cash-flow positive from day one.
