Newman's accidental solar boom

In slashing the Queensland solar PV feed-in tariff, it appears Premier Newman has inadvertently induced a solar PV boom. In order to get in before the cut-off date for the 44c feed-in tariff, there has been a rush of applications running at 1.4 megawatts per hour over the past 13 days.

Queensland Premier Campbell Newman must have one hell of a solar hangover today.

Following his announcement to cut the 44 cent net feed-in tariff, he provided the industry and solar consumers with a window of opportunity to sign up before the scheme was switched to 8 cents – and sign up they did.
