n NSW, retailers can choose whether or not to offer solar feed‑in tariffs to their customers, and decide the level of the solar feed‑in tariff that they offer.
This Final Report presents and explains our final recommendation on the benchmark range for solar feed-in tariffs for 2017-18.
We have been asked to review benchmark ranges for solar feed-in tariffs in NSW annually for the next three financial years. We invite all interested parties to comment on our preliminary views.
IPART set a solar feed-in tariff benchmark of 4.6 to 5.5 c/kWh for 2021‑22. This is a guide for customers about how much they can expect to receive from their retail for their excess solar electricity that is fed into the grid.
The Premier of NSW has requested that IPART undertake an investigation into a fair and reasonable value for electricity generated from small-scale solar photovoltaic systems.
