"Solar Tax" is a term coined by solar customers after proposed changes were drafted by the AEMC’s recent proposal. This proposal outlines that solar-producing households creating excess energy would be charged under a “two-way” pricing structure that activates when the electricity network is at peak congestion.

In summary, it means that networks could impose a pricing scheme that would charge solar customers for exporting rooftop-generated solar at peaks of high demand, reducing the time-of-use savings to the customer.
