Whether you already have solar energy, or are interested in investing in solar panels, Origin Energy solar team has you covered. From purchase and installation, to solar plans and feed-in-tariff, Origin Energy offers everything you need to ensure you’re getting the most out of your solar PV system. So for more information about how Origin Energy can help you benefit from solar energy, keep reading more below.

Origin Energy Solar Plans

Depending on your situation, the best Origin Solar plan can vary. 

If you already have a solar PV system, you're eligible for the Origin Energy Solar Boost Plan which offers a higher solar feed-in tariff than Origin's standard FiT. 

If you want to purchase solar panels, you can purchase a solar PV system with Origin Energy, and get the highest Origin solar feed-in tariff possible with Origin Solar Boost Plus.

One big advantage of getting a solar plan with Origin is that you can manage, track your usage, and see how much you've earned in feed-in credits all with the Origin Energy Login account.

Origin Solar Boost Plan

If you already have a solar PV system, Origin Energy Solar Boost will give you the best solar feed-in-tariff of any Origin Energy electricity plan.

With Origin Energy Solar Boost, you don’t get a discounted electricity rate like you would with their other energy plans, but if you have a big enough solar PV system, your solar feed-in-tariff should give you a better discount.

  • Higher solar FiT or bigger discount?
  • If you have a smaller solar PV system and use most of your energy during the day, or have battery storage, you’re probably better off choosing an electricity plan with a bigger discount and smaller solar feed-in-tariff
  • If you have a bigger solar PV system (over 5kW), and don’t use most of your energy during the day, you should consider a higher solar feed-in-tariff

  • ACT: 20c/kWh
  • Victoria: 20c/kWh
  • Queensland: 20c/kWh

Origin Solar Feed-in Tariff

Origin Energy solar feed-in tariffs are available to all solar energy customers, regardless of which plan you choose.

Origin Energy’s standard solar FiT is available on their regular electricity plans (Origin Go, Origin Flexi, and Origin Home Support). Whether you want a higher feed-in-tariff or a bigger discount depends entirely on your solar PV system, and energy consumption habits.

Origin Solar Battery Systems

Adding a battery to your Origin solar PV system can potentially maximise your solar energy usage.

Batteries allow you to store the excess energy your system generates during the day, so you can use it when the sun isn’t shining. If your battery fills up, any additional energy generated is sent back out to the grid, allowing you to also benefit from a solar feed-in tariff. Origin Energy offers two batteries, the Tesla Powerwall and LG Chem Resu, both of which are among the most popular choices for solar battery storage.

Origin Energy Virtual Power Plant

Origin Energy customers in Victoria can take advantage of the Victorian Government’s Microgrid Demonstration Initiative, a virtual power plant that connects solar PV and battery storage systems to create a new electricity network.

Whether you have a solar PV system, or want to install one, you’ll receive a heavily discounted 6.5kWh LG Chem RESU battery to connect you to the VPP.

  • A 6.5kWh LG Chem RESU battery for $5,895
  • 24 month interest-free payment plan
  • Full installation with Sungrow Hybrid inverter
  • Guaranteed $300 back in credit within the first year

In order to be eligible for the Origin Energy VPP and LG Chem RESU battery, you need to be an Origin Energy electricity customer for the five-year trial period, and grant Origin Energy access to the power in your battery to charge and discharge it.
