Solar feed-in tariffs (FiTs) are a way of encouraging the uptake of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems.
Solar feed-in tariffs vary depending on the state you live in.
In Victoria and South Australia feed-in tariffs are based on a net tariff scheme. A net tariff scheme means that you may receive a FiT when excess electricity generated by the solar PV system is exported to the electricity grid.
In Victoria, if you are a small customer with a solar PV system there are two solar feed-in tariff schemes: a premium feed-in tariff (PFiT) and a retailer feed-in tariff (RFiT) scheme.
Premium feed-in tariff (PFiT)
The PFiT is closed to new customers.
If you already have a PFiT agreement in place with another retailer you can switch retailers and continue to receive a PFiT rate of 60 cents / kWh. You will need to enter into a new PFiT agreement with us for this to happen.
Feed-in tariff (FiT)
If you have recently installed a solar PV system you can apply to receive the feed-in tariff (FiT). Our FiT rate is currently 12 cents / kWh but this rate is subject to change.
