If your home or business property produces more solar power than it needs, a solar feed-in tariff allows you to feed energy back into the network grid for other customers to use. In exchange for your unused electricity, you receive a rebate on your electricity bills.
There’s currently no nationalised program for feed-in tariffs. Instead, each Australian state has a unique arrangement based on energy prices in individual areas. That means a solar feed-in tariff in NSW may offer a different rate than a solar power feed-in tariff in QLD.
