Will I lose access to a feed-in tariff if I switch to Powershop?

Answer

Victoria

Customers entitled to the Premium Feed-in Tariff (PFiT) or the Transitional Feed-in Tariff (TFiT) will not lose access to their entitlements.

If you are entitled to the old “one for one” Standard Feed-in Tariff (SFiT) that was available to households before 31 December 2012, you will lose access to it by switching retailers, and will revert to the current 8.2c feed-in tariff.

Please visit Victoria's Energy and Resources website about standard feed-in tariffs for more information.

NSW

The NSW Solar Bonus Scheme ended on 31 December 2016.  Powershop customers in NSW get a feed in tariff of 8.2c kWh.

South East Queensland

Solar customers who are eligible for the Solar Bonus Scheme in Queensland will not lose their entitlements by switching to Powershop. Queensland customers will get 8.2c kWh, with an additional 44c kWh for those on the Solar Bonus Scheme.
