Come along on Wednesday Oct 12th to hear about Solar Citizen's Fair Price for Solar campaign in NSW, and find out how you can get involved.
The rapid growth and high penetration of rooftop solar PV in Australia is largely attributable to State-based ‘solar bonus schemes’ which created high feed-in tariffs for exported solar power from small-scale systems.
The end of 2016 will see the expiry of the 60c/20c NSW Gross FiT currently enjoyed by 146,000 households. NSW does not even set a minimum market rates for solar exports, allowing retailers to set low or even zero prices for solar exports.
Retailers don’t want to pay solar owners a higher amount because solar is the competition.
That means retailers and network companies are profiting from the investments that everyday Australians have put onto their roofs. What we want is a fair price that reflects what solar energy is worth. A fair price means more solar, and more solar means more renewable energy in Australia which is good for everyone!
Everyone is welcome- whether you're an old hand, or you don't know much about Solar Citizens and want to learn more, we'd love to have you there.
