The Queensland Government Solar Bonus Scheme (SBS) provides eligible customers a payment for excess electricity generated and exported to the network.

You are eligible for the 8 cent tariff if you meet the following requirements:

  • Purchase and install a new solar PV system or operate an existing system that is connected to our electricity network. The inverter capacity must not exceeding 5 kilowatts.
  • Consume less than 100 megawatt hours of electricity a year.
  • Hold an electricity account with an electricity retailer for the premises where the solar PV system is installed.
  • Have entered into a Network Connection Agreement or a Connection Contract with us.
  • Only submit one scheme application per premise (this means you can only have one SBS tariff at your premises regardless of the number of accounts you hold).
