updated 2 December 2015
The Commission has released the final decision on the 2016 minimum retailer feed-in tariff (R-FiT).
The decision is that the minimum R-FiT for 2016 is 6.8 cents per kWh. This is the minimum amount that energy retailers must pay to residential and small business customers for the electricity they export into the grid. Retailers are free to offer their customers more than the minimum R-FiT. The decision takes into account the latest available information, including the announcement of the closure of the Northern Power Station at Port Augusta on or about 31 March 2016.
