Australian households are facing significant costs of living pressures, with the biggest challenge being soaring utility rates. Millions of families will see their electricity costs rise from July 2022, after the energy industry watchdog increased prices by hundreds of dollars a year. Electricity prices are rising faster than ever before, wholesale energy prices more than doubled from the March to June 2022 quarter with a price of $200/MWh for both Queensland and New South Wales; the rapid increase in wholesale energy prices is now flowing through to households.
Is it a good time to invest in solar energy? Absolutely! With the cost of utility rates rising across the country and the impact the highly volatile wholesale electricity market is having on your energy costs, now more than ever is the time for households to go solar, offsetting greenhouse gas emissions and significantly reducing their electric bills. In recent years as regulations have eased and prices have dropped for solar, an increasing number of homeowners have tapped into solar power. But nationwide renters have been kept in the dark. Because renters do not own their homes, they’re left out of important infrastructure decisions such as installing rooftop solar and enjoying energy affordability. Despite low costs and broad market penetration, solar power remains unattainable for millions of Australian tenants/renters throughout the nation.
At Beat Energy™, we are working to bring solar services to those most in need, so that more households can save money on their electric bills and make the clean energy choice that benefits both the local economy and the environment. With our breakthrough products and innovative services, we are enabling homeowners, tenants, landlords and business owners to intelligently access solar energy. Sustainable energy should be accessible and affordable for all and at Beat Energy™ we are a community-centric business, committed to helping our customers navigate through a complex and dynamic energy market, providing the benefits of reliable, affordable and renewable energy to all.
Solar power has traditionally been seen as something only available to property owners but Beat Energy™ is committed to changing all that. We are making it viable for tenants to enjoy the environmental and financial benefits of solar energy. At Beat Energy™, let us show you how solar options for Renters and Landlords work together to profit from the disruption we are creating in the energy market, benefitting all our partners. We are enabling Renters to reduce their power bills with solar on their property, whilst helping Landlords earn passive income from this arrangement also. This unique program works by creating mutual benefits for both the Renter and their Landlord.
We are excited to expand our innovative solar services so that more households can save money on their electric bills by making a clean energy choice. Going solar can have a wide range of benefits and Beat Energy™ is making it possible for renters and low-income families to gain easy access!

At Beat Energy™ we believe that sustainable energy should be accessible and affordable for all. As we all have been witnessing, the electricity sector is experiencing a profound disruptive shock as the adoption of solar energy is threatening the often predatory business models of large established power companies. As a community-centric business, we are committed to helping our customers navigate through a complex and dynamic energy market, providing the benefits of reliable, affordable and renewable energy to all.
An increasing number of Australians are getting conscious about the source and amount of energy they use in their daily lives. Unfortunately for millions of Australian tenants, the current benefits of renewable energy are still eluding them. It’s difficult for a tenant to get the environmental and economic benefits of solar energy because they can’t take decisions around solar energy or install solar panels for properties they do not own.
Additionally, Landlords typically will not invest in solar energy on their rented properties where the financial benefits are exclusively for the tenant. Landlords who request an increase in rent for installing solar systems, typically find it hard to quantify the real net benefit to their tenant.
Since solar has become such a popular way for people to reduce their utility bills and carbon footprint, smart Landlords are seeking ways to invest in solar for their investment/rented property that can realise financial benefits for them and their tenants in a completely transparent manner. Cheaper energy for their tenants will deliver a desirable incentive for renters to choose one property over another. In the next couple of years Landlords who fail to go smart with the energy choices on their properties could be left behind.
At Beat Energy™ we are enabling tenants to reduce their energy bills with solar, whilst helping Landlords earn more passive income from their rental property. This unique program works by creating mutual benefits for both the tenant and their landlord. Tenants enjoy reduced energy bills and clean energy reducing their carbon footprint, whilst the landlords also receive income from all the solar energy generated from the solar system, which is either consumed by their tenant or exported for a Feed In Tariff (FiT), both of which are received as income by the landlord.
Landlords also get to take advantage of depreciation benefits when they invest in solar and/or battery storage. Until now, going solar has mainly been a beneficial option for those who own their own homes, but at Beat Energy™ we are transforming that notion with our Smart Solar offerings, making solar energy accessible to just about any Australian, tenant or homeowner! With our unique platform, we are now enabling landlords and tenants to adopt solar and can offer renewable energy benefits to:
Many people across Australia are realising the myriad of benefits from going solar. Whether your motivations are economic, environmental, or personal, with our innovative smart solar offers there is something for everyone. Here are the top reasons why solar energy is good for your rental property and why you must consider it:
Going solar can have a wide range of personal, economic and environmental benefits! What’s your motivation?

A new pilot project in partnership with Beat EnergyTM and AnglicareSA is enabling South Australians on low incomes to access smart rooftop solar energy for the first time.
Energy affordability is a pressing issue for low-income Australian householders and to address this, Beat Energy™ has joined hands with AnglicareSA to install Smart Solar systems, helping low-income community housing tenants access cheaper energy via Smart Solar systems. The $260,000 project aims to develop affordable solutions for low-income tenants to benefit from solar energy and reduce their cost of living and carbon footprint. In the initial phase, 37 low-income households are making the most of solar-powered community housing and will be able to save up to 20 % on their energy costs through this initiative.
At Beat Energy™, we believe that sustainable energy should be accessible and affordable for all. We are committed to helping our customers navigate through a dynamic energy market and with our products we aim to meet the growing clean energy demand. As the developers of breakthrough energy solutions, we are confident that our energy management and control innovations will provide the benefits of reliable, affordable and renewable energy to all Australians.
Access to solar energy has become fundamental for households to reduce their energy costs and improve energy affordability. Although many homeowners are opting for solar energy, solar has typically not been available to all householders, especially to a vast number of Australian tenants. This initiative aims to implement feasible and practical solutions for low-income tenants to access solar energy that can be scaled across regional and metropolitan Australia.
AnglicareSA is one of the largest providers of community housing in SA. AnglicareSA Executive General Manager Housing, Michelle Gegenhuber, said, "The solar systems are paid for, maintained and owned by AnglicareSA, leaving tenants with no installation expenses. All South Australians, especially those on low incomes, deserve access to technology and services that reduce their cost of living. With no out-of-pocket expenses for tenants, the new initiative will not only help reduce bills, but contribute positively to the environment, and educate our tenants to better understand and control how and when to use energy throughout the day. As we work towards our vital goal of increasing the supply of social and affordable housing, we are committed to ensuring that we’re developing sustainable homes suitable for the long term. We are proud to be working with a South Australian family business, using locally-developed technology to achieve the best energy solutions for our tenants.”
Together with this partnership, Beat Energy™ and AnglicareSA aim at solar adoption while reducing financial stress as the tenants can relax and feel more comfortable running appliances while not worrying about high energy bills.
AnglicareSA tenants John and Beverley are looking forward to reaping the financial benefits of the new solar system. The couple rely on the aged care pension and are grateful to have access to renewable energy – an opportunity they always thought was financially out of reach. “It’s great so far – being able to track how and when we use energy so we can keep the cost of the power down,” John said. "We often thought about solar, but since retirement haven’t had the funds to do so.”
Beat Energy™ co-founder and CEO Domenico Gelonese said, “Twenty-five per cent of all Australian householders are tenants and unfortunately the majority have been left out of the renewable energy market, while their energy costs continue to market while. We are putting an end to that and making solar available to all Australians, especially those who need it most.”
Following the pilot project, AnglicareSA will be exploring renewable energy options across its social and affordable housing portfolio.
