Wouldn't it be nice not to have to rely on electricity suppliers to power our homes? No more monthly bills and unexpected price hikes, it seems too good to be true right?

Well one lucky Australian will soon be living the dream, having recently won a lifetime supply of energy thanks to solar panel producer Suntech Power Holdings.

Dale C from Victoria purchased a 4.5 kilowatt solar system for his home, and as a result was the lucky winner of a giveaway that will see him receive a $20,000 complete solar system and eco-retrofit.

"I'm so excited to have won the grand prize. I was already very happy with the performance of my Suntech solar panels. When I found out that I had won, that was just icing on the cake," said Dale in a press release issued July 24.

Unfortunately it looks like the rest of us will still be paying energy bills for some time yet, so now might be a good time to undergo a electricity comparison and ensure you are with the best provider to suit your needs.

While you won't be able to completely eliminate your monthly power bills, you can often stand to save a surprising amount of money, so it is worth the effort.
