Ok the way to go about this is as follows: 

You call your provider and tell them to come do a final meter reading as you demolish the house and will let the land empty up for sale. Pay off your final account and close it down.
Switch to solar and never ever call them again.

  However, even if I install to the point where I'm totally energy self sufficient, the fact that the power lines run past my house means that I'm up for a minimum of $130/quarter "access charges" even if I cut the wire to my house..

Not So!

Refuse to pay your last bill and let them cut you off! ;D
Make it a small bill though! ;)

I like the demolish idea. 

But you know the water works like that too.  When they run the pipes past my house, not only will they charge me access charges, despite the fact that I'm totally tank and septic, they have the right to levy charges on my unused bill for the development costs of the pipes.

I reckon - living anywhere that there are wheelie bins is just too too build up for my liking.  There's another charge that I don't want to use but still pay.

Going solar means you HAVE to go away from electric hot water

Resurrecting an old thread but...disagree with this statement. We looked at solar hot water, didn't like the set up costs, so sparky suggested a 200L electric water heater, set on a timer to heat during day, and it's electric hot water, just of a different kind. Morning showers may be a bit cold but can always have gas back up.

Which items, the solar system or the appliances? 

If the system then from memory the battery module was about $25k the
solar panels if you wanna save you have to get a whole pallet @ 42 panels. 
They come at $850 per panel on a pallet or $1200 sold individually,
the big inverter was $8k
the smaller units $4k. 
Cables/consumables about $2k
Installation for us was free as my son is a sparky ;)

Battery module is big and heavy but easy to dismantle as it's made of multiple flooded bays and a far better choice in the bush with less chances of creating bushfire lol
Also the saltwater battery cannot be damaged if run really low hence our choice to go this way.
Saltwater tends to be safer than acid and widely available in the event of SHTF


Our module has 12 cells on a man made pallet.

See this video on the battery stack

Love the battery set up, I wonder why it's not offered as an alternative to the usual batter banks?

my friends dad has a bank of them, they where expensive when he first got them, he said they had a good life but they have been on the down turn, they are now all made in china and they had filed for chapter 11 which is bankruptcy which then they unfiled, it would be great if they are accessible but the tesla battery offers the best bang for buck, especially if hooked up with a solar system or wind system, one of my friends has one that is hooked up to the main grid, it fills up during the cheap tariffs and then powers the house during the more expensive tariffs. he is already seeing a saving of 13% without using any solar systems

You can save a lot of money on panels now. I just bought 40 trina panels 250 watts for $50 each 2nd hand. They are in excellent condition and function fine.
Dc heating elements are also available for your hot water systems.

OK, no probs.

I'll be out your way this week, got a job clearing scrub, dunno where yet, just "Out Monto way". Won't have time to drop in this time but if it becomes a permanent gig I should be able to.
