About the Solar plan
We want to support the growth of rooftop solar in Australia and help our customers get the best value from their systems. On the Solar plan, we encourage you to get the most out of your solar panels by using the energy you produce in your own household – aka ‘self-consume’. That means shifting more of your household electricity usage to daylight hours and reducing the amount of electricity you will need to buy from the grid later on when the sun goes down. This is better for the environment, and better for your bills. It’s a win-win!
As a reward, on this plan you’ll get one of the highest solar feed-in tariffs available on the market for up to 5 kWh of excess solar generation you export to the grid. Any additional export beyond that will still get a feed-in tariff, it will just be a bit lower.Why is the FiT higher for the first 5 kWh of export?
The high feed-in tariff we offer for the first 5 kWh of export per day is our way of rewarding customers who are keen to make the most of their rooftop solar systems and reduce their grid electricity usage. This feed-in tariff is often above the true market value for electricity produced during midday hours so unfortunately, we are not able to offer it at an unlimited rate.
If you are exporting significantly more than 5 kWh of solar energy per day, you might want to consider shifting some of your household electricity usage to the middle of the day, when your solar panels are generating the most power. This ensures you are utilising as much of your own solar generation as possible and reduces the amount of electricity you will need to purchase later on after the sun goes down! This is good for your carbon footprint, and good for your bill.Why are the base rates higher on this plan?
This plan is designed for customers who are willing and able to shift some of their electricity usage to daylight hours. For those customers, we are confident that this plan offers epic value with a great feed-in tariff.Can I join the Solar plan before my solar system is installed?
Yes! If you are having solar installed shortly, and want to join this plan in preparation for the day your system starts producing, you are more than welcome to join ReAmped on the Solar plan. You won't receive any feed-in tariff credits until your solar meter installation is complete. Be sure to let us know on live chat so we can ensure your meter tariff change is processed ASAP.If I'm already a customer, can I switch to ReAmped Solar?
Yes, we can definitely switch you over to this plan. Get in touch with us on live chat
and we would be happy to arrange this for you.
