Solar power feed-in tariffs in Queensland.
In Queensland, your potential earnings for electricity fed into the grid are calculated using the net metering system. Under this system only the electricity generated in excess of what you use is fed into the grid, and you receive a feed–in tariff per kWh for this electricity.
What you could potentially earn
- The current Queensland Government Solar Bonus Scheme feed-in tariff sets a rate of 8 cents* per kWh of electricity fed into the electricity grid.^
- AGL offers eligible customers a feed-in tariff of 16 cents* per kWh of electricity fed into the electricity grid. This amount includes the current Queensland Government Solar Bonus Scheme feed-in tariff of 8 cents* per kWh of electricity fed into the electricity grid^, plus an extra 8 cents* per kWh from AGL.†
- Customers with an existing solar installation may be eligible for different feed-in tariff amounts. Please visit the Queensland Government website or call AGL today on 131 245 (8:30am to 6pm, Monday to Friday) for further information.
- Even if you are not eligible for a feed-in tariff from the Government under the Solar Bonus Scheme, AGL will pay you 8 cents* per kWh for all electricity generated by your solar power system and fed into the electricity grid.†
- Certain AGL electricity plans are not available to solar customers. AGL has a number of electricity plans that are available for solar customers. Please contact AGL on 131 245 to discuss which offers are available to you.
It all adds up
Over time, the advantages of generating solar power can really work for you.
- With a Solar power system, you might use less electricity from the grid, because the electricity your Solar PV system generates can help power your home. And using less electricity from the grid means less to pay on your bill.
- Also, if your solar power system generates more electricity than your home requires, you will receive credits on your bill for any excess electricity that is fed into the grid.#
