 Origin Flexi eRate Plus offers a total discount off usage and supply, as well as flexible payment and billing, giving you the freedom to pay your bills in a way that works for you. You have the option of monthly or quarterly billing statements, either sent by email or in the mail, as well as optional direct debit.

 Origin Solar Boost gives customers the higher solar feed-in tariff available through Origin. If you have a solar PV system then you are eligible for Origin Solar Boost. If you choose to purchase a new solar PV system from Origin, then you can unlock the highest Origin solar feed-in tariff with Origin Solar Boost Plus.

Origin Energy solar feed-in-tariff rates

If you have residential solar energy on your property, you might be interested to know Origin Energy’s solar feed-in-tariff rates. Origin Energy offers solar feed-in-tariff options to its customers, which vary depending on the state you live in and depend on what Origin Energy electricity plan you choose.

Regular solar feed-in-tariff: Origin Energy’s minimum solar FiT, which is available on every electricity plan they offer. If you have a smaller solar energy system (under 5kW), or use most of your energy during the day, you’ll probably be better off choosing one of Origin Energy’s electricity plans, and opting for the lower solar feed-in-tariff.

Solar Boost feed-in-tariff: If you have a larger solar PV system (over 5kW) and don’t use most of your energy during the day, thus exporting more to the grid, you might be better off choosing Origin Energy Solar Boost. With Solar Boost, you don’t get additional discounts, but you do get a higher solar FiT for the energy you generate.

Solar Boost Plus feed-in-tariff: Solar Boost Plus offers Origin Energy’s biggest solar feed-in-tariff, but with some conditions. Customers can only get Origin Energy Solar Boost Plus if they purchase a new solar PV system directly from Origin First.

Origin Energy's solar feed-in-tariff
  Regular solar feed-in-tariff Solar Boost feed-in-tariff Solar Boost Plus feed-in-tariff
New South Wales 7c / kWh 12c / kWh 22c / kWh
ACT 7c / kWh 11c / kWh 20c / kWh
Victoria 10.2c / kWh 14c / kWh 20c / kWh
Queensland 6c / kWh 9c / kWh 18c / kWh
South Australia 8c / kWh 13c / kWh 21c / kWh
