Right now, when rooftop solar owners sell their excess power back to the grid they receive around 11c/kWh. But the retail companies on-sell this same electricity to a neighbour for up to 32c/kWh — that’s nearly three times the amount solar households get back!
That's why we're calling on state governments to put a stop to price gouging by retailers by legislating for a fair price for solar. A fair price should be mandatory and it should account for health and environmental benefits as well as network savings that solar provides for the whole community.
Can you use the form below to email your state MP and ask them to support a fair price for solar that is mandatory and recognises all the benefits solar provides?
