You can benefit from your solar system by using the power it generates in your home and by exporting any excess power to the grid. You may be eligible for a payment for exported solar energy. This payment is called a feed-in tariff.
In South East Queensland, residential customers can get a market feed-in tariff direct from their electricity retailer. There's no mandated rate for power exported to the grid, because retailers offer competitive, market-based tariff rates. This means you can also shop around for a better deal.
Customers who live in regional Queensland can access a regional feed-in tariff, and will soon be able to choose between a flat and a time-varying tariff.
The former Solar Bonus Scheme feed-in tariff of 44 cents per kilowatt hour is no longer available to new customers.
