Can I increase the capacity of my solar system by adding new panels and continue to receive the Premium Feed-in Tariff?

The premium scheme was designed with a cap on the total installed capacity of solar panels across the state. This cap is now fully subscribed, so the scheme has closed to new applicants. If you decide to add extra panels, now that the scheme has closed, you will forfeit access to the the Premium Feed-in Tariff.

Can I add new solar panels to my system if I already have an oversized inverter, and still access the premium rate?

If you have an oversized inverters (for example a four kilowatt inverter with 1.5 kilowatts of solar panels) you are still not able to upgrade your existing generation capacity without becoming ineligible for the premium solar feed-in tariff. The premium scheme was designed with a cap on the total installed capacity of solar panels across the state. This cap is now fully subscribed, so the scheme has closed to new applicants.

Can I replace solar panels for maintenance reasons and keep the Premium Feed-in Tariff?

Yes, if you need to replace existing panels for maintenance reasons, for example, due to storm damage, you may do so without losing the Premium Feed-in Tariff, as long as you do not exceed the original generating capacity of your system.
