Sunset on Victoria’s Feed In Tariff: Navigating Your Solar Future Post-2024.

Back in November 2009, Victoria took a pioneering step with the launch of the Premium Feed in Tariff (PFiT) scheme, offering households a generous 60 cents for every excess kilowatt-hour of electricity they sent back to the state grid. This brilliant initiative was designed to fuel the adoption of solar systems, and it’s been doing just that for nearly 15 years. As we approach its conclusion in November 2024, it’s time to think about what comes next.

Unlike the adjustable regular solar feed in tariffs set annually by Victoria’s Essential Services Commission, the PFiT has consistently offered a fixed rate. If you’re currently benefiting from this scheme, there’s no impact from the upcoming change, but it’s an excellent moment to start planning for the future.

Now is the perfect opportunity to explore the evolving world of solar technology. Since 2009, advancements in this field have been substantial. Modern solar systems are not only more efficient but are designed to be future-proof, ready to integrate seamlessly with the next wave of energy innovations like battery storage systems and smart home technologies that could power everything from your electric vehicle to your induction stove.

If you’ve been enjoying the benefits of the PFiT, why not stay ahead of the curve? Upgrading your system can help you continue to control your energy costs effectively. Plus, if your current setup is over ten years old, you might qualify for additional perks like rebates and loans for solar batteries or efficient water systems through programs like those offered by Solar Victoria.
