4 September 2012 — Victoria’s solar feed-in tariff will be broadened, from 1 January next year, to include all low-emissions and renewable technologies of less than 100 kilowatts. The new tariff will initially provide a minimum of eight cents per kilowatt hour of electricity exported to the grid – based on the adjusted wholesale price of electricity. The rate will be updated each year in line with the adjusted wholesale electricity rate. The move comes after a review by the Victorian Competition and Efficiency Commission in January this year. The new feed-in tariff will be available for all electricity generators of less than 100 kilowatts which produce 50 per cent or less of the emissions intensity of electricity generation in Australia. Ceramic Fuel Cells, a developer of small generators that use fuel cell technology to convert natural gas into electricity and heat, said the decision would help further develop the market for locally developed clean energy technology.
