The 10/10:20/20 Incentive rewards residents who reduce their energy use with discounts on electricity bills. And the more you reduce your energy use, the more money you will save.
If you have had a Home Energy Survey and you’ve begun to implement the recommendations in your report such as turning off the Solar Hot Water booster, changing your light globes or installing shading, you should begin to see your electricity consumption drop.
If you can reduce your electricity consumption by 10% or more compared to the consumption for the same billing period of the previous year, Alice Solar City will credit your next bill by 10%. Reduce your average daily use by 20% or more and receive a 20% credit.
Our funding is limited, and we will stop accepting claims after April 2013 or earlier if funding runs out, so don't delay in submitting a claim.
You can start to claim the 10:10/20:20 rebate from the first complete billing period after you have registered with Alice Solar City. You must also have lived in the same house and have electricity bills under your name for the corresponding quarter of the previous year to be able to make the claim.
The 10:10/20:20 rebate is calculated on the daily average electricity consumption measured in kilowatt hours (kWh) and the amount you are paid is based on the value of electricity saved. If you make a successful 10:10/20:20 claim, it will appear as a credit on the following power bill (refer to the back page of your bill, under Payments Received).

To claim the incentive all you need to do is forward a copy of your most recent electricity bill to Alice Solar City along with a copy of the electricity bill from the same period in the previous year. You can drop into the Smart Living Centre, fax us a copy or you can email us a scanned file - as long as we can see both sides of the bill.
A member of the Alice Solar City team will let you know whether your household has successfully made a reduction or not and a credit will be forwarded to Power and Water Corporation on your behalf.
Our available funding for this incentive is almost full expended and we will stop processing 10:10/20:20 claims when the funding is fully allocated or by the end of April 2013 whichever is the earliest.
For more information about how you can claim this incentive download the factsheet.
You will need your current power bill as well as the bill for the same period the previous year. If you don’t have your bill from the previous year, contact Alice Solar City as your previous consumption records have been supplied to us by Power and Water.
You will also need to read the service charges on the back of both your bills. Refer to the fact sheet “How to Read your Electricity Bill “ for assistance in locating the information needed.
If you have any difficulty with these instructions or the on-line calculator, feel free to contact the Smart Living Centre. We will be happy to do the calculations for you.
If you are participating in the trial Cost Reflective Trial you may also be eligible to claim the No Worse Safety Net.
