The buzz of excitement generated around Tesla Energy and the Powerwall in Australia, has been building over the last 12 months, with the Tesla Powerwall.
Queensland & NSW both offer feed-in tariffs. Feed-in tariffs pay the owner of a solar energy power system a premium per kWh of solar electricity per hour they feed back into the grid.
There are currently two different models running in Queensland and New South Wales.
A net feed-in tariff (QLD) pays the solar system owner a premium for excess electricity fed back into the grid by their system.
A gross feed in tariff (NSW) pays the solar system owner a premium for all electricity produced and fed back into Grid.
With QLD losing its premium .44c Feed in tariff on the 1st of July 2012, customers will gain most from their solar system by using the power they generate instead of sending it to the grid.
For Feed In Tariff QLD (net Feed In tariffs) – AS OF JULY 1st 2012: .08cents for all excess power generated from solar systems up to 5KW. Some retailers are offering up to .16 cents.
Feed In Tariffs for NSW (gross/ net feed in tariffs) .06 cents – .08 cents for all excess power fed into the grid.
