Do energy companies/ electricity retailers give solar power rebates?

Energy companies do not give direct rebates but depending in the state you are in and on the energy company, you might be eligible for a Feed-in-tariff. Feed-in tariffs provide people producing their own renewable energy with a financial return for the excess power they feed-into the grid.

The feed-in tariff is available to households, community organisations and small businesses who install solar power systems no greater than 100 kilowatts in size. Unfortunately a lot of energy retailers now pay only relative low feed-in tariffs, so it is more advantageous to use the power your solar system generates.
