Hi Gordon,

Is that the correct link? It sends me to an article about "Have an affair with solar this Valentine’s Day" that doesn't seem to related to upgrading in NSW and keeping FIT.

The only "new" bit of info included in this which wasn't included in the legislation changes at the end of 2010 is the option of adding a second system "net metered" - and only get whatever the retailer offers (7.7c seems to be the going rate, or nothing at all). I am aware Endeavour Energy permits these additional systems however other DNSPs have not yet offered it to my knowledge. I know of at least two sites where this was attempted in Ausgrid's area but don't know the outcome. There should be an official announcement soon from Ausgrid about the option of having both 60/20c gross metered system alongside a net-metered system.

Update: http://www.energymatters.com.au/index.p ... le_id=3779

"Essential Energy is now accepting applications from Solar Bonus Scheme participants in New South Wales who wish to upgrade their rooftop solar power systems without having their feed in tariff rate affected."

What is this based on?

Under current feed-in tariff levels, households in Sydney installing a good quality 4kW solar power system can expect to see a financial benefit of between $1,055 and $1,619 annually; depending on installation location and electricity consumption profile.

The estimated Sydney and NSW electricity bill savings range is based on 38c per kilowatt hour electricity price and an .08c feed in tariff with 50% of generation fed back to the grid to 100% consumption of produced electricity.

Thanks. That being the case, then I am sure there are a lot of people out there for whom going grid tied is still actually quite compelling - even if they don't yet have any existing panels and don't get any other bonuses.
