Double Buyback offer FAQs

  • What is a ‘buyback rate?”
    Your solar system provides energy to power your home, but what about any excess solar energy that you don’t use? That’s where a buyback rate comes in. Any excess solar energy that your system sends back to the grid is purchased by your energy provider at a specified rate known as a ‘buyback rate’ or a ‘solar feed-in tariff’. The benefit that you receive from your buyback rate is identified on your electricity bill, so you can keep track of how much your system is generating.

  • How do I get a solar quote?
    It’s easy! You can get a free solar quote by contacting us online. As your energy retailer we have access to your usage data, which allows us to accurately tailor a system perfectly designed to save you the most money.

  • How do I know if I’m eligible?
    This offer is available to ACT and NSW residential customers on a standard retail contract. The full terms and conditions are detailed below.

  • How is this offer activated?
    From the date that your system is switched on ActewAGL will purchase your exported electricity at the 15c/kWh rate. You’ll see any credits generated by this buyback rate appear on your electricity bill.

  • Terms and Conditions
    Offer available to ACT and NSW residential customers on a standard retail contract who accept a quote and pay a deposit (if applicable) for a new solar system up to 10kW in capacity from ActewAGL between 6 March 2017 and 2 April 2017. For customers on a market retail contract the buyback rate may differ. ActewAGL will purchase exported electricity at 15c/kWh from the date that the customer’s new solar system is switched on until 30 April 2018. Buyback after this date will revert to ActewAGL’s Small-Generator Buyback scheme rate available for customers on a Standard Retail Contract at the time. Electricity imported from the grid used by the customer at their premises will be billed at the customer’s published tariff energy rate(s). The customer must continue to pay the supply charge and any other applicable charges. GST will be added to the generation purchase amount where the customer is registered to charge GST.
