To help guide retailers and customers, IPART annually recommends a benchmark range for these tariffs based on the financial value of solar electricity.
Fact sheet – An update on setting the solar feed-in tariff benchmarks for 2019/20
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.
This fact sheet briefly explains our draft findings and recommendations in relation to a fair and reasonable solar feed-in tariff, and discusses how an unsubsidised feed-in tariff should be implemented in NSW.
IPART has set a draft all-day benchmark range of 7.5 c/kWh. We have also set time-dependent feed-in tariff benchmark ranges that are different for different times of the day.
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.
This fact sheet briefly summarises our key findings on the characteristics of PV units in NSW, and discusses what we considered to be the key messages for PV customers.
Last year we agreed Voluntary Transitional Pricing Arrangements (VTPAs) with each of the standard gas retailers. Under these agreements the retailers must submit proposed changes to their prices to us prior to any increase.
