Anyone who is on this forum probably already knows of this report but just in case..... the ATA recently completed a study into household fuel choice which showed that new homes that go all-electric with solar save between $9000-$18000 over 10 years compared with a home that has gas appliances and no solar. See the following link to the Fifth Estate:

I certainly regret getting gas considering that half of our gas bill is purely service to property and we have an open flue gas heater which is going to be banned in Victoria soon:(.

Im building a house and the option to not install gas was thousands extra. Just insane.
I got extra cables ran (for induction and hot water heater) and have installed solar. Have not made the switch yet but im ready

I have solar and gas also, find that in a cold climate with not much sun around in winter and also not been home in the much shorter winter daytime, that my solar is brilliant in summer, even autumn, but much less effective in winter, I find six star brevis gas heating for a 50 square house, which we heat about 25_30 squares, run heater about 3 hours a day which is enough to heat the house till bedtimes, running costs of 360 a quarter.
