On the 1st of January this year, people with solar panels were hit with a massive 20% cut to the money they’re paid for energy they feed into the grid. Next January, we’re expecting an even bigger cut. Thousands of people will see their rate drop from 25c per kWh to less than 6c.
People should be rewarded for installing solar panels - not punished. People should be paid the same price for producing solar power as coal generators are paid for their power.
A higher feed-in tariff would mean more people can install solar panels, would reduce our carbon emissions,and boost local clean jobs.
Email the Minister now to express your disappointment as the Government’s decision to slash the solar feed-in-tariff.
