These legislated, premium rates were available for a period of five years and expired on 31 December 2018.​ From 1 January 2019 to 30 June 2019, residential and small business customers received the 2018-19 Regulated FiT rate plus an additional 5 c/kWh Government bonus. Between 1 July 2019 and 31 December 2019 these customers will receive the additional 5 c/kWh bonus on top of the 2019-20 Regulated FiT rate.
