FAQ: Solar

What is a feed-in tariff and when do I get it?

A feed-in tariff is a price that you will get paid for electricity you generate from sources such as solar power. The feed-in tariff in Victoria and Queensland are net feed-in tariffs i.e., it only applies to the excess electricity that you export to the grid, while in New South Wales it is a gross feed-in tariff. All retailers are required to offer their eligible customers the regulated or subsidised feed in tariffs. You can receive the feed in tariff by contacting Click Energy once you have a solar power system installed with the correct metering in place.

How much will I be paid for the electricity I generate?

You will only be paid for electricity that you export to the grid. You are not paid for electricity that you generate and use in the house, but this will be reducing the amount of electricity that you need to import and so reducing the total cost of your electricity purchases.

Will I be paid cash for the electricity that I generate?

Click Energy offers a credit on your bill as payment for the solar energy you export to the grid. If your bill is in credit of $100 or more, you can request a refund from us once every 12 months.
