*The Average electricity produced calculations are an estimate based on data provided by the Clean Energy Council.

**The potential savings per year calculations are an estimate based on the average cost of electricity per kW/h being $0.30 except the ACT which is $0.21 and assumes 5kWh of electricity produced is used and the remainder fed back into the grid based on data provided by the Clean Energy Council.

#NSW FiT is based on AGL net tariff rate, ACT FiT is based on ActewAGL 1:1 net tariff at average energy price. All other states are state based FiT schemes.
