Synergy Solar Feed-in Tariff, in Detail.

The Synergy solar feed-in tariff (or DEBS – Distributed Energy Buyback Scheme) is minimal compared to alternative states and another great reason why you should avoid buying a solar return system through Synergy. Nonetheless, there is no reason why you shouldn’t flex your eligibility muscle and receive a portion of value for exported electricity units as opposed to nothing at all.


What are the fees?

Fortunately, the savings from a solar energy system negates these initial fees often within the first month or two. However, before applying for anything, it’s always best to understand the costs involved.

DEBS administration fee
$21.00 (inc GST) per account

For the above costs, you can receive 0.10c for each unit (kWh) exported by your solar energy system during peak period (between 3pm – 9pm) and 0.03c for each unit exported during the off-peak periods (before 3pm or after 9pm).

What do I get in return?

For the now simplified initial cost of $116.70 to apply and ensure the correct metering, you can receive 10c for each unit (kWh) exported by your solar energy system during peak period (between 3pm – 9pm) and 3c for each unit exported during the off-peak periods (before 3pm or after 9pm).
