State of NSW Set to CHARGE Customers for exporting solar to the grid! Will the rest of Australia follow suit?

It is becoming apparent that installing a battery with your system is quickly becoming the most sensible thing you can do when transitioning to a renewable energy source for your home or business. As of 2025 NSW have approved retailers to charge customers for exporting surplus power back to the grid!

Adding battery storage simply gives you the peace of mind that you are not going to be dictated too with regulation changes. They want to charge you for exporting surplus? that's easy, turn off export and store your own solar generation into a battery system to reduce or get rid of night loads.

Put simply this will bring in a change that no one with Solar wants to see.

Customers are charged 1.2 cents/kWh for the electricity they export above a free threshold during the peak export period (10am to 3pm). 10am to 3pm = 1.2c/kWh charge Customers receive a payment or credit of 2.3 cents/kWh for the electricity exported during the peak demand period (4pm to 9pm). 4pm to 9pm = 2.3c/kWh reward.

Will this open the flood gates for the rest of Australia to follow suit?
