The popularity of solar panels has been enhanced by the Renewable Energy Buyback Scheme (REBS) offered by energy retailer Synergy. REBS gives residents with solar panels a chance to make money by feeding excess power back into the grid. Synergy then pays customers for the excess power generated.
Synergy’s REBS contract has several important terms and conditions. Clause 9 is of particular importance to real estate agents selling a property with solar panels:
9.2 Synergy may terminate this contract at any time if any of the following occurs:
9.2.1 subject to clause 9.4, the customer sells or transfers or vacates the premises.
Clause 9.4 relates to owners leasing their premises, who may be able to obtain the consent of Synergy in certain circumstances to transfer the REBS contract to the tenant. However, the owner will still have certain obligations under the REBS contract.More information can be found on Synergy’s website.
