From November 6, new solar customers or households that expand their system in WA will only receive 3c/kWh for the solar energy they export to the grid during the middle of the day. The Distributed Energy Buyback Scheme (DEBS) rate will drop from a flat 7c/kWh to the below time-varying rates:
- Electricity exported between the 3pm to 9pm peak time will earn 10 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh);
- Electricity exported at other times will earn 3c/kWh.
