Solar Feed-in Tariff Review

The Tasmanian Government is committed to delivering secure and reliable electricity supply and lower power prices through its Tasmania-first energy policy. Key objectives are:

  • 100 per cent self-sufficiency in renewable electricity generation by 2022
  • the lowest regulated electricity prices in the nation by 2022.

As part of the policy, to make sure that the Feed in Tariff (FiT) system provides appropriate rewards and incentives, the Government requested a committee comprising the Director of Energy Planning, and representatives of the Department of State Growth and Department of Treasury and Finance, review the existing arrangements.

Public submissions were sought on 7 July 2018 with the consultation period ending on 6 August 2018. There were 63 written submissions received as part of the FiT Review.

The Government has received the report of the committee and has responded to a number of the recommendations. Other options canvassed by the committee will need to be considered in the context of the 2019-20 State Budget process.
