Why are Super Solar usage and supply prices and feed-in tariff rates changing?

Our energy price changes are due to a number of factors, including our costs associated with managing wholesale energy and other costs of providing energy to customers.

Our solar feed-in tariff is decreasing because the value of the solar energy exported to the grid is lower, due to higher levels of supply during the day (when most solar exports happen).

Am I better off on the new Super Solar prices compared to other plans?

The Super Solar plan offers a more competitive feed-in tariff rate than Powershop’s other generally available energy plans, such as Power House and Power Offset. However, the Super Solar plan energy prices are not the lowest usage and supply prices we currently offer.

You need to assess the energy usage and supply prices and the value of the higher feed-in tariff when considering if this is the most suitable plan for you. We encourage you to find the most suitable Powershop plan here.

You can also find out whether other energy plans in the market may suit you by accessing the Australian government energy price comparison service - https://www.energymadeeasy.gov.au/.

You are free to switch to another retailer at any time while on the Super Solar plan.

Can customers still join Powershop and take a Super Solar plan?

The Super Solar plan has not been available to any new or existing customers since 13 November 2023.
