Many Solar Choice customers who installed a solar energy installation in NSW on the 60c tariff are likely to be concerned by the NSW Govt’s attempt to retrospectively slash the feed-in rate from 60c per kWh to 40c. With 110,000 NSW households having invested in good faith under the scheme, this move gives new meaning to œdaylight robbery. But there is good news.
Varous Liberal and National MPs are considering voting against the feed-in tariff reduction legislation when it’s before parliament tomorrow. In addition, the Shooters and Fishers Party and the Christian Democrat Party – who together hold the balance of power in the Upper House “ have stated their reluctance to vote for retrospective legislation.
We’re encouraging all our installed NSW customers to voice their dissent this afternoon – quick and efficiently using the following online portal:
