NSW Solar Bonus Scheme Closure

The Solar Bonus Scheme ended on 31 December 2016.

Customers who had been receiving a feed-in tariff of 60 cents or 20 cents under the scheme, now receive a much lower tariff and may have to replace their meters.

If you were a Solar Bonus Scheme customer with a gross meter, you have two options available to get the most value from your solar installation:

  1. Contact your electricity retailer to see if they are rolling out net meters to replace your current gross meter
  2. Contact an Authorised Service Provider (ASP) to either replace or re-wire your current gross metering with net metering.
