The return of the Feed-in Tariff

By 12 July 2011 1

The ACT Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate have announced the formal re-opening of the solar feed-in tariff scheme after the Liberals and Greens over ruled Labor in the Assembly.

Further to amendments recently passed in the Legislative Assembly, a revised ACT electricity Feed-in

Tariff will re-open on 11 July 2011, said David Papps, Director-General of the Environment and Sustainable Development Directorate today.

Micro and Medium scale generators will no longer have separate capacity caps. Instead, both categories will share a combined cap of 30MW.

“The Micro scheme was closed on 31 May 20-11 due to overwhelming demand. The equivalent of almost 18 months of applications were received over a six week period. As a result almost 23MW of the combined 30MW cap has already been committed,” said Mr Papps.

The re-opened Scheme is available to all eligible renewable energy generators up to 200kW capacity.

A new flat rate Premium Payment of 30.16 cents per kWh will apply.
