Victoria

The Victorian government introduced a new minimum feed-in tariff from 1 July 2017. The rate will initially be a (relatively) generous 11.3c/kWh, but will be subject to regular reviews and will fluctuate annually. The rates in the table below reflect the current feed-in tariffs on offer in the state.

(N.b. The Victorian government has recently introduced a “time varying feed-in tariff” whose rates are not reflected below.)

Queensland

At the moment, there is no mandatory minimum feed-in tariff rate for southeastern Queensland (Energex network). Instead, individual electricity retailers assign a value to exported solar power as they see fit. Some retailers offer more than others, and some retailers offer nothing.

If you are a resident of regional Queensland (Ergon network), however, there is a mandatory minimum that you will receive for exported solar power (check the QCA’s website for current rates).

South Australia

At the moment there is no minimum solar feed-in rate in South Australia. Instead, electricity retailers set their own feed-in rates voluntarily – so solar homes need to shop around to find the best possible deal.

Western Australia

At the moment, the mandatory minimum feed-in tariff rate for the southwestern region of Western Australia is set by local network company Synergy, who currently offer 7.2c/kWh. There is no retail electricity competition in the state, so all rates are set by the relevant regional utilities in conjunction with their government regulators.

If you are a resident of the regional Horizon Power network, the mandatory minimum that you will receive for exported solar power will depend on where you are. Horizon offers between 10¢/kWh and 50¢/kWh for exported solar power depending on the town and whether local solar capacity quotas have been reached already. A full list of the rates can be found here. Also note that in some areas export control devices may be required for solar system owners.

ACT

At the moment, there is no mandatory minimum feed-in tariff rate in the ACT. Instead, individual electricity retailers assign a value to exported solar power as they see fit.
