Are you on the right rate structure based on your usage and the size of your solar system?

Depending on where you live and how you use electricity, there may be rate structures that can help maximise your savings with solar.


There are two types of rate structures that are generally available for solar customers:


  • Single rate, where you pay the same rate for electricity you consume throughout the whole day.
  • Rates that vary based on the time of day and day of the week you use electricity from the grid.

Your household size, home appliances and solar system size are factors to consider when selecting the best rate structure for you. Think about whether you are home during the day, how many people are home on weekday evenings and whether you use more or less on a weekend. Answers to these will help determine the best rate structure for you.


We recommend you talk to your electricity retailer, use this information and ask questions to help you determine the best rate structure for you.
