Solar feed-in cuts unfair

Greens energy spokesperson Ellen Sandell says the proposed cut to the price paid for electricity fed into the grid by solar customers is unfair and will only benefit big energy companies.
"It's simply not fair for solar owners to get only one sixth of what the big energy companies are paid for their dirty power" said Ellen Sandell.

"Continuing to cut the feed-in tariff punishes solar owners and prevents Victorians from taking control of their energy bills by investing in solar.

"The big energy companies want to maintain the fossil-fuel powered status quo, and further cutting the solar feed-in tariff only helps them profit from polluting" she said.

The Greens support a fair price for solar, where owners are paid a guaranteed minimum price equivalent to what they pay for energy.
