Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2018 Week 06 Hansard (Thursday, 7 June 2018) . . Page.. 2297 ..


The NEM is an interconnected network with electricity flowing continuously around it with any non-renewable electricity drawn by the ACT grid from NSW being fully offset, by 2020-21 (the 100% renewable electricity target year), by renewable electricity generated into the NEM by feed-in tariff supported generators located elsewhere in it.

The generation from the ACT’s feed-in tariff supported solar farms is fed directly into the ACT grid. Their output in each financial year is listed below.
