Earlier today the NSW Govt invited submissions from the solar energy industry and members of the public on what changes, if any, should be applied to the immensely popular Gross Feed In Tariff (or Solar Bonus Scheme).
Submissions need to be lodged by 30 September 2010.
Thankfully the NSW Govt hasn’t imposed any sudden changes. The Minister has made clear that customers already connected to the scheme, or who will have their gross meters approved by their electricity wholesaler prior to any legislative changes (if any), will not have their entitlement to the scheme’s generosity affected.
Solar Choice anticipates that demand in NSW for solar energy installations will surge on this news, and recommends that customers err on the side of prudence and proceed with their preferred installer as soon as possible to avoid any risk of missing the 60c per kW hour gross tariff.
