Darren at Green-Change.com has a post up (Gross Solar Feed In Tariff Petition For Australia) about the Australian government waffling on the issue of a nationalised renewable energy feed-in tariff for homes.
He continues with, 'Recent announcements seem to indicate that they’ll favour a net tariff, which is very much inferior to the gross feed-in tariff the solar industry is calling for'.
Darren continues to explain, 'A gross feed-in tariff (where the energy-producing household is paid for all the electricity they generate) would create a massive incentive for people to invest in rooftop solar systems and other renewable energy sources (e.g. small-scale wind generators). This is what we need'!
What's he doing about it?
He's posted a link for a online petition, 'If you agree, hop on over and sign the Gross Solar Feed In Tariff Petition For Australia. I have. And so have I now.
