      Finn Peacock has a great site that gives lots of unbiased information on solar power, he's Adelaide based as well.

      An excerpt of the info you're interested in...
      Typical cost of an installed 1.5kW solar system: $6,000
      Government Rebate: $3,000
      Cost to you for 1.5KW of solar power: Approx $3,000

      Approximate Costs of Bigger Solar Systems After Rebates.

      The wide variation in pricing is mainly down to the quality of the hardware used. To use a car analogy (as most people are more familiar with car brands than solar power brands!) expect the lower price range to be "Hyundai/Kia" level brand and the upper price to be "BMW/Lexus" level brand. I'll leave you to decide if BMWs are worth paying more for than Hyundais!
      As at January 2012
      2kW : $3,500 - $6,500
      3kW : $5,500 - $9,500
      4kW : $8,000 - $12,500
      5kW : $11,000 - $16,000
      10kW: $20,000 - $35,000
