Sign the petition for a fair price for solar

Right now, when rooftop solar owners sell their excess power back to the grid they receive around 6c/kWh.

But the retail companies on-sell this same electricity to a neighbour for up to 29c/kWh — that’s nearly five times the amount solar households get back. It’s daylight robbery. Big retailers, who also own the dirty, old generators that are competing with solar, need to pay a fair price.

There are many benefits of rooftop solar, such as grid savings, environmental and health values that are not recognised at the moment. This needs to change.

It’s time that solar owners are recognised for the power they feed back into the grid and are paid a fair price for the sunny energy that benefits all consumers.

Dear Member of Parliament,

I want to see Australia powered by clean, locally-made solar energy. But price gouging by the big retailers and outdated laws are holding us back. 

We need a minimum price paid to solar owners that reflects the benefits of rooftop solar. Solar power is more efficient, cleaner, safer and provides resilience to our electricity supply. These benefits are not calculated in the price for solar electricity. 

Recognising the true value for solar will lead to more investment in clean power and allow the benefits to be shared with everyone.

Your Sincerely,
