New and existing solar customers
We’ve increased what we pay for your solar
On 1 July 2017 we increased our standard retailer feed-in tariff (FIT) rate from 6c/kWh* to 7c/kWh* to Queensland electricity customers with eligible net metered renewable energy systems.
The increase applies to all Origin QLD customers currently receiving the standard retailer feed-in tariff.
*Subject to change at any time. All amounts are GST-inclusive (if any).
Solar customers - Southern QLD region only
For Origin customers located in the Southern QLD region (Essential distribution patch) - your solar feed-in tariff also went up on 1 July 2017.
The Queensland Competition Authority has set a new solar feed-in tariff for your region from 1 July 2017. For you, this means an increase from 7.448c/kWh* to 10.102c/kWh* for 12 months from that date.
Customers affected by the change have received a note from us, and will see this change listed on their first electricity bill sent after 1 July.
*Tariff is GST-inclusive (if any)
