I have an existing solar system. Will I lose my feed-in tariff?
One important consideration when adding a battery to an existing solar system is the impact this may have on your existing solar feed-in tariff.
If you have an existing solar system and receive the 44c/kwh feed-in credits under South Australia’s statutory feed-in scheme, you will no longer be eligible to receive feed-in credits if the capacity of your solar system is increased or a battery system is installed.
Your eligibility to receive feed-in credits will cease from the date of your application for approval to connect the home battery system is submitted to SA Power Networks.
You may also wish to speak to your retailer about how adding a battery may affect any feed-in tariff you currently receive.
