Solar Connections

If you are thinking of installing small scale photovoltaic electricity generation, it’s important to understand how your chosen solution will affect your electricity bill.

The type of meter needed to support your installation and the resulting tariff you are assigned will have an impact on how much you are paid for the energy you produce, and the tariffs you pay for electricity drawn from the electricity grid.

A number of electricity tariffs changed in 2011 to give customers greater control over how they manage their electricity use, resulting in CitiPower and Powercor’s range of tariffs being streamlined and simplified. You can learn more about solar installations and tariffs through the fact sheets below, or access a range of forms and guidelines to help you connect solar or other forms of generation to the CitiPower or Powercor networks.
