Solar Feed-in Tariff Review

The Government is reviewing the current arrangements for the Solar Feed-in Tariff in Tasmania with new arrangements to be implemented by 1 January 2019.

It has 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; and
  • the lowest regulated electricity prices in the nation by 2022.

Submissions to the Solar Feed-in Tariff Review are now invited.  

The review will consider feed-in tariff arrangements to ensure appropriateness in rewarding those people who have already installed solar and the incentive for future solar installation in Tasmania.

Submissions must be in writing and addressed to:

Solar Feed-in Tariff Review
GPO Box 536
Hobart 7001
Or email:

Submissions close on 6 August 2018.
