Terms and Conditions

Ready to power up the value of your solar? To receive your solar feed in credits, simply read and accept the following terms and we will take care of the rest.

These Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Feed-In Terms (“FIT Terms”) form part of your Agreement for the sale of Energy and are the conditions applying separately to your Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Feed-In, except as explicitly stated herein.

These FIT Terms will amend certain terms of your original Agreement. This is primarily to facilitate the transition of your account to solar, but it will also update your Agreement to be in line with the current Market Contract terms set out here. 

Pursuant to your Agreement your Distributor may charge for their services provided to enable your PV Feed-In, accordingly we will pass through any such charges to you.  For further information on these charges, please contact your Distributor. 

All words appearing in capital letters in these FIT Terms have the same meaning as defined in the current Market Contract, unless defined herein.

  1. Feed-In Tariffs

    1.1. If you have a solar photovoltaic (PV) system installed at your Premises and an electricity Agreement with us, we may pay you a feed-in tariff for any excess electricity your system generates and exports to the electricity grid pursuant to these terms.

    1.2. There are two types of feed-in tariffs:
    (a) a voluntary feed-in tariff which we pay, which may be under an Energy Plan;

    1.4. For feed-in tariffs payable under Law, we may vary the amount of your feed-in tariff, and let you know about the change, in accordance with Laws.
