RET amended to clarify eligibility of solar PV systems

The Renewable Energy Target legislation has been amended to clarify the eligibility of solar photovoltaic (solar PV) systems under the Large-scale Renewable Energy Target (LRET) and the Small-Scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES).

Previously, owners of solar PV systems between 10–100 kW in capacity could elect to participate in either the LRET or the SRES. Amendments to the regulations underpinning the Renewable Energy Target now make it clear that only systems with a capacity over 100 kW may be eligible to participate in the LRET.

While the owners of systems between 10–100 kW, installed prior to 1 January 2018, have 28 days from the date of installation to apply to participate in the LRET, the Clean Energy Regulator will continue to consider applications in this category until 31 March 2018 in the interests of procedural fairness. After this date, all systems under 100 kW will only be eligible to participate in the SRES and will not be considered for the LRET.

For additional information, including system eligibility, see: the Renewable Energy Target, and Small-scale systems eligible for certificates, including those that have capacity increased to more than 100 kW.
