Minimum Electricity Feed-In Tariffs
Under the Electricity Industry Act 2000 (Vic), the Commission is required to determine the minimum electricity Feed-In Tariff. The Feed-In Tariff is the minimum price per kilowatt hour that electricity retailers must pay customers who are small renewable energy generators (traditionally those with solar panels), for electricity they produce and feed back into the grid.
In determining the minimum Feed-In Tariff, the Commission must have regard to:
- prices of electricity in the wholesale electricity market, and
- any distribution and transmission losses avoided in Victoria by the supply of small scale renewable energy generation electricity.
- the avoided social cost of carbon and the avoided human health costs attributable to a reduction in air pollution.
2017–18 Electricity Feed-In Tariff
The letter outlines our approach for setting the Feed-In-Tariff for 2017–18 following amendments to the Electricity Retailer Act 2000, which passed the Legislative Council on 7 February 2017.
The Commission will determine a Feed-In-Tariff for 2017–18 by 28 February 2017.
