Solar Buyback Rates

What buyback rates apply?

Buyback rates* 
Residential customers 25.67 cents per kilowatt hour
Commercial customers 29.87 cents per kilowatt hour

*effective 1 July 2017

A customised rate can be negotiated for solar PV systems greater than 30kVA and for customers more than 750 000kWh.

How is my buyback calculated?

You only receive a credit for the excess energy produced and sent to the grid.

For example if your solar PV system has produced 2000 kWh for the quarter, however only 500 kWh were sent to the grid, you will only receive a credit for the 500KWh.

How can I apply to receive the buyback?

Once your solar PV system has been installed, or you have moved into a home with a PV system, you need to complete and return  your Power Purchase Agreement by email to customercare@jacanaenergy.com.au or by post to Jacana Energy , GPO Box 2601, Darwin NT 0801
