Getting your solar system up and running
There are two types of solar feed-in-tariffs in the NT.
|Standard feed-in-tariff||Rates ex GST||Rates incl. GST|
|Residential||-8.3 c/kwh||-9.13 c/kwh|
Premium solar feed-in tariff update: The Northern Territory Government recently announced key changes to Jacana Energy's solar feed-in tariff (FiT) rates.
|Premium feed-in-tariff||Rates ex GST||Rates incl. GST|
|Residential||-24.88418 c/kwh||-27.3726 c/kwh|
The Northern Territory Government recently announced key changes to Jacana Energy's solar feed-in tariff (FiT) rates.
As of 1 July 2022 customers who have received the Premium feed-in tariff for four years or more, will be changed to the Standard feed-in tariff (-9.13 cents per kilowatt hour incl. GST).
We will contact you soon to advise when your account will be transferred to the Standard feed-in-tariff. For more information see our solar update.
Step 1) Apply to connect to the grid
Connection of all rooftop solar systems and battery systems (including where altering an existing system) are subject to the technical requirements and approval of your network provider, Power and Water Corporation.
Please refer to their website for the application process to install and connect rooftop solar and battery systems. Approval to export electricity into the grid is not guaranteed and is subject to the technical assessment undertaken by Power and Water.
Step 2) Request the feed-in-tariff
Jacana Energy is responsible for assessing the eligibility of the application for a feed-in-tariff. Once the solar installation has been completed at your premise, please contact us to request a tariff change. You can call us on 1800 522 262 or request the tariff change in writing at email@example.com
Step 3) Check the applicable rate on your bill
You will see the rate applied to your account (standard) on your next bill. Please note that once the feed-in-tariff is applied to your account, and you start receiving a payment for the electricity you export into the grid, you are agreeing to our Power Purchase Terms & Conditions.
Many people who install solar are now also installing batteries so they can store electricity generated by their solar panels for use when the sun isn’t shining.
The Home and Business Battery Scheme encourages households in the Territory to use other renewable energy sources to cut electricity costs.
This scheme allows you to access a $6000 grant to include a battery into a new or existing Solar PV system, providing the battery has a capacity of 7 kilowatt hours or more.
The cost of Solar PV systems vary depending on the type and size of the panels installed. Your solar installer will be able to give you advice around what type will best suit your home and needs. Investing in Solar PV may cost you at first, but can help you save money in the long run.
