The long awaited report from the REC Agents Association (RAA), a national industry body representing firms that create and trade in renewable energy certificates, analyses the uptake of solar panels and hot water systems by postcode and income has been released.
I find it has confirmed what I have long known in that the majority of solar being installed is being done so by ordinary Australians who are looking to tackle outrageous electricity bills.
“Five million Australians have embraced solar because it protects their families from soaring power bills”, said Ric Brazzale, RAA President.
This debunks the ridiculous notion being put forward by the coal and gas barons that only the most well off Australian’s get solar, so why should we subsidise it, the facts of the matter prove the exact opposite.
