Feed-in tariffs

A feed-in tariff (FiT) is a credit customers receive for any unused electricity that their solar power system sends back to the power grid. It's usually a set rate per kilowatt hour and paid as a credit on electricity bills.

Eligible customers can be paid a solar feed-in tariff with any of our electricity plans. Your solar FiT and electricity are two different products, so your solar rates and your electricity rates have separate terms and conditions. Solar rates may change from time to time and we will let you know before a rate change affects you. This is in line with our solar terms and conditions.

Australian state governments used to fund feed-in tariff schemes, but they are now closed for new customers. Retailers, like us, do still provide some feed-in tariffs, depending on what state you’re in and the size of your system. To give you an indication of what rate you may be eligible for, here's a table of our current feed-in tariffs.

If you're a new customer, call 1800 171 209 to switch your plan or electricity to EnergyAustralia.

If you're an existing EnergyAustralia customer, call 1800 703 035 to add a feed-in tariff to your plan.
