Solar Feed-in Tariff Information

In Victoria solar customers are entitled to receive a feed-in tariff, providing customers with a financial return for excess power they generate that is fed back into the grid.

There are a number of steps involved to becoming a solar customer including the installation of solar panels and upgrading your electricity meter so we recommend you take a look at the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning website to understand these steps as well as eligibility criteria.

All of our Victorian offers are available to customers with solar.

Previous Feed-in Tariffs

Previously, a number of other State Government feed-in tariff schemes were offered which are listed below. Those premises with either of the two schemes below in place are able to switch electricity retailers (once eligibility has been established) and will continue to receive the feed-in tariff entitlements under either scheme until the relevant scheme end date providing they remain eligible.

The older one-for-one Standard Feed-in Tariff offered a ‘one-for-one’ rate. This rate was based on the retail electricity rate paid by the customer, for excess renewable electricity generated by eligible properties. Entry into this scheme ended on 31 December 2012. Customers already on the scheme are able to remain on it until 31 December 2016 providing they remain eligible. However, customers are not able to change electricity retailers if they wish to remain on this scheme.
