Solar Credits

Solar Credits provide additional support to households, businesses and community groups that install small renewable energy generation units, such as rooftop solar panels, and small-scale wind and hydro electricity systems.
Solar Credits apply to the first 1.5 kilowatts (kW) of capacity installed for systems connected to a main electricity grid and up to the first 10 kW of capacity for single phase / 30kW for three phase off-grid systems.
Solar Credits work by multiplying the number of certificates that these systems would generally be eligible to create under the standard deeming arrangements. The level of support in terms of the number of certificates received via Solar Credits will be determined by the date the system is installed. The current multiplier that applies for eligible system installations is five. The Solar Credits multiplier reduces over time, reflecting reductions in technology costs and the role that a carbon price is expected to play in investment in renewable energy over the longer term.
The Government has recently announced changes to the Solar Credits multiplier which will apply from 1 July 2011. The schedule of multipliers which determines the additional certificates an eligible small generation unit could create is outlined in the following table.

Feed in Tariff

If you are a ‘small electricity customer' in South Australia - that is a household, small business, community building, church or other facility that consumes less than 160 MWh of electricity per annum (as a guide) - and have installed or intend to install, a solar photovoltaic (PV) electricity system on your premises, you are able to receive a premium price for any excess electricity you return to the electricity grid.
The scheme rewards customers whenever they generate more electricity than they are using - NOT just the balance at the end of the month or quarter, but whenever generation exceeds consumption during the day.
You will need a meter that separately records the electricity you return to the grid so that, even if it is only for a second, the meter will keep track of any electricity you return. When the meter reader comes around at the end of the month or end of the quarter, the total amount of electricity you have returned and the total amount you have consumed will be read and passed onto your electricity retailer.
Under the feed-in scheme, your electricity retailer will credit you with 44 cents for every kilowatt hour of electricity you return to the grid from your solar system (as read by the meter reader). In recent announcements, Premier and Minister for Sustainability and Climate Change, Mike Rann, announced the State Government intends introducing legislation to increase the bonus to 54 cents per kilowatt hour. In addition, most electivity retailers also provide an additional credit for excess electricity fed into the grid. This is typically a minimum of 6c for every kilowatt hour.
