What an unfair budget for Australia! This is an unfair budget that gives big business and the banks an $80 billion tax handout and makes Ordinary folk pay for it with cuts.
Bad news today, with IPART recommending a reduction in the solar tariff to 7.5c/kW for 2018-19, down from 11.9-15/kW.
Shadow Minister for Industry, Resources and Energy Adam Searle said the reduction of the feed-in tariff will effectively penalise NSW solar households for producing clean power.
IPART has justified the cut by claiming an increase in solar exports has led to a drop in the wholesale cost of electricity during the day.
Labor has so far been the only party with the political will to outline a plan for secure and clean energy while the Liberals stand idle and do nothing.
“There are many benefits to having rooftop solar and people who invest in clean power should be rewarded for it, not punished.
