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. 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.
Help us build the campaign for A Fair Price for Solar by getting friends and family to sign campaign postcards. We'll deliver the postcards to your local MP once we've got a whole stack signed. Fill in the order form below and we'll pop your postcards in the mail.
When you order your postcards we'll also send you a handy guide to help you get your postcards signed, so keep an eye on your email inbox.
