Want to know which electricity retailer is offering the best solar feed-in tariffs for households? Listed below are electricity retailer’s latest solar feed-in tariffs for households in ACT, NSW, NT, QLD, SA, TAS, VIC and WA including key feed-in tariff conditions.
What is a Solar feed-in tariff? Solar feed-in tariffs (FIT) are the payment made to solar owners for the energy they generate and send back into the grid. Like a tiny power station, any extra energy generated through your solar panels that you don’t use can be sold back into the grid at the feed-in tariff rate. The retailer-provided solar FITs listed here do not include any bonus feed-in tariff that may be provided by state or territory governments. Premium FITs are shown on the retailer feed-in tariff pages linked below.
A good solar feed-in tariff is important, but to find the best deal you also need to value usage rates and supply charges. It’s easy to get it right with WATTever’s comprehensive electricity comparison offering a personalised cost ranking of all publicly listed electricity plans, based on your unique energy use and solar export to help you make serious savings. We include all retailers, tariff types, discounts, solar feed-in tariffs and limits, input for concessions and more. For more tips see our essential guide to comparing electricity for solar owners.

Note: We show minimum and maximum feed-in tariffs (FITs) as some retailers offer different FITs on different plans. Residential feed-in tariffs shown exclude GST. GST on feed-in tariffs is only paid to ABN holders.
“Market-linked plans” that have their rates tied directly to the wholesale market spot price are not included in the tables above because these rates vary every day and cannot be compared like-for-like with most plans where the published rate is the rate you pay. To view indicative rates and feed-in tariffs published for market-linked plans, please see WATTever’s rates pages for Amber Electric and Powerclub.
– Battery only and Electric Vehicle only plans that require the household to have a battery or EV are not included in the tables above due to the small portion of consumers who qualify for these plans. These plans are still visible on the retailer solar feed-in tariff pages. Please see WATTever’s feed-in tariff page for Social Energy who primarily offer battery-only plans.
The latest report from the Australian Energy Council (AEC) shows that rooftop solar has become the second-largest generator of electricity in our country. That’s because households with solar now provide a whopping 14.7 gigawatts (GW) of capacity.
Rooftop solar is now the second biggest generator of electricity in Australia, pushing down the cost of power. But what about the 7 million households who don’t have solar? Here’s how the new so-called ‘solar sponge tariffs’ enable anyone to get on board with cheaper daytime electricity.
