Despite investing billions of their own dollars in the electricity grid of the future, solar households are facing outrageous discrimination. The Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) is considering allowing power companies to charge solar owners simply for feeding their electricity back to the grid.
To add insult to injury, most solar households are not currently paid a fair price for the electricity they supply to the grid. On average, power companies pay solar owners around 6c/kWh for the very same solar power that they on-sell for around 29c/kWh. It’s price gouging, plain and simple.
If this change comes about, solar owners will in effect be paying for the privilege of getting ripped off on the power they supply to the grid.
Big power stations don’t have to pay to supply their electricity to the grid and solar households shouldn’t have to pay either. Can you make a tax deductible donation in to help us stop this solar swindle and win a fair price for solar?
