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 standard feed-in tariff is 8 cents per kilowatt hour* for electricity generated and fed back into the grid. This is currently under will review and is subject to change.
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.#
