We are in the ACT, and I know that these tariffs no longer apply to new customers.
We are still connected to the grid, we pay 17.5c per Kwh we use and are paid 47.5c Kwh we export back to the grid. On a gross feed tariff, so well sell it to them for 47.5c and then buy it back at 17.5c. This is a 25 year scheme
We make a profit of around $650 a quarter, this credit we then get paid to us each year and used for rates, water etc
We have a 3.6kw system.
But we watch what electricity and I am the electricity nazi around the house.
Not sure of the cost, but we brought it when the government was giving out rebates, so systems were more expensive then.
We have friends in NSW who have just put in solar and they only get 1:1 tariff.so they sell it to the electricity company for the same price they pay it for.
