We can’t allow big network companies a free pass to charge solar owners for sharing their clean energy with the grid – the Australian Energy Market Commission’s (AEMC) controversial plan to slap a tax on solar exports must be blocked.
Polluting gas and coal generators don't have to pay for supplying electricity to the network, so why should homes and businesses who have made an investment in rooftop solar be penalised?
Momentum is building with Queensland and Victoria coming out against the sun tax, but we must make sure NSW Energy Minister Matt Kean comes to the table before it’s too late. The AEMC’s final round of consultation is almost complete and a decision will be made soon, now is the time to ramp up the pressure on NSW to stand up for solar.
Please give a tax deductible donation today to support the NSW polling effort. Let's show Minister Kean and the NSW Government that voters in their backyard oppose the sun tax.
