Solar Energy – act now to avoid disappointment
By Bob Walker
South Australia’s popular Feed-in
Scheme has been reviewed. On
31 August 2010, the Premier and
Minister for Sustainability and
Climate Change, the Hon. Mike
Rann, announced the Government’s
decision to make a number of
changes to the scheme as a result of
At the time of the announcement
there were more than 18,000 solar
customers with a combined total
capacity exceeding 25MW. The
Government’s intended changes
to the scheme in response to the
review aim to increase the benefits
to solar customers while limiting
the total cost of the scheme to all
customers in the State. Legislation
will be introduced in parliament to:
• increase the bonus from 44 cents
to 54 cents per kilowatt hour;
• obligate retailers who choose to
contract with solar customers to
pay a minimum rate for the power
that they receive from the owners
of solar panels;
• limit payment of the bonus to the
first 45 kilowatt hours exported to
the grid per day;
• limit eligibility to one generator per
customer or entity;
• specifically exclude generators
operated primarily for the purpose
of generating a profit from the
• close the scheme to new
connections when an installed
capacity of 60MW is reached.
The first two points are designed to
result in South Australia’s scheme
providing a bonus at a level that
makes the scheme at least as
generous as those of Victoria,
Queensland and Western Australia
over the life of the scheme, which
will run until 2028.
The last point is the most important.
The 60MW capacity is expected
to be reached sometime in 2011.
Updated information will be provided
when the legislation is introduced
As it now stands, anyone installing
a 1.5KW system can reasonably
expect to recoup the capital
expenditure in approximately three
years. This will change when the 54c
per kilowatt hour feed-in tariff is no
There were many disappointed
people when the $8000
Commonwealth Government rebate
ended abruptly in 2009. Do not join
them by missing out this time. The
time to act is now!
