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.
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.
When the Solar Bonus Scheme (SBS) ends on 31 December 2016, SBS customers will stop receiving a subsidised feed-in tariff of either 60 cents or 20 cents per kWh for the electricity they export.
