When considering the benefits of solar in South Australia, remember that your potential earnings from 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. Of course, any electricity you consume immediately from your own solar system fully offsets the cost of electricity you would have otherwise purchased.
What you could potentially earn.
Solar customers who take up a new AGL energy plan will currently receive a feed-in tariff of 5.3 cents per kWh* for electricity generated and fed back into the grid. ^ This feed-in tariff is subject to change.
It all adds up.
Over time, the advantages of generating electricity through a Solar PV system can really work for you.
With a Solar PV 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.
If your Solar PV 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#
