From 10 July 2012 the Queensland Government Solar Bonus Scheme feed-in tariff will change from 44 cents per kilowatt hour (kWh) to 8 cents per kWh for all new customers.

Existing Scheme customers will continue to receive 44 cents per kilowatt hour for energy exported to the electricity grid, provided they maintain their eligibility for the Scheme.

Prospective customers wishing to access the 44 cent feed-in tariff rate have until midnight on 9 July 2012 to lodge an application with their electricity distributor. The distributor will consider all applications against Scheme eligibility criteria and their technical, safety and quality requirements.

The 8 cent tariff will begin on 10 July 2012 and be reviewed by 1 July 2013. It is scheduled to end on 1 July 2014.
