How feed-in tariffs work

Energy produced by your solar power system is converted to electricity and used in your house. Any electricity that isn’t used can be exported to the electricity grid. You may be eligible for a payment for the exported electricity. This payment is called a feed-in tariff.

If you live in South East Queensland, you may get a market feed-in tariff directly from your electricity retailer. There is no mandated rate for electricity exported to the grid so electricity retailers offer competitive, market-based tariff rates. This means you should shop around for the best deal.

If you live in regional Queensland, you can access a regional feed-in tariff.

The former Solar Bonus Scheme feed-in tariff is not available to new customers.
