Electricity Feed-in (Renewable Energy Premium) Act 2008—review

Ministerial statement

MR CORBELL (Molonglo—Deputy Chief Minister, Attorney-General, Minister for Health, Minister for the Environment and Minister for Capital Metro) (4.04), by leave: Today I am presenting a statement to the Assembly on the operation and review of the Electricity Feed-in (Renewable Energy Premium) Act 2008. This is the act under which the ACT's rooftop solar feed-in tariff scheme operates. The act provides feed-in tariff support for small-scale solar generators with a maximum generating capacity of 200 kilowatts. The act was passed in July 2008 and began operation in March 2009.

The scheme was closed to new applicants on 13 July 2011 with existing applicants prior to that date able to progress their installation process in their own time. The feed-in tariffs offered under the act have been, between March 2009 and June 2010: 50.05c per kilowatt-hour for installations up to 10 kilowatts in capacity and 40.04c per kilowatt-hour for installations greater than 10 kilowatts but no more than 30 kilowatts in capacity.

Between July 2010 and May 2011 these feed-in tariff rates were consolidated into a 45.7c per kilowatt-hour rate for all installations up to 30 kilowatts in capacity. From March 2011 to May 2011 a feed-in tariff rate of 34.27c per kilowatt-hour applied to installations greater than 30 kilowatts but no greater than 200 kilowatts. In the last two
