Qld govt to force PV owners to sell all their electricity to retailers

The Queensland Competition Authority has suggested that solar PV owners can not consume the generation from their own systems and must sell it all at 8 cents to retailers and buy it back at 20 to 30 cents. Why? Because the government wants to subsidise air-conditioners.

The Queensland Competition Authority (QCA), in a recently released issues paper, has suggested that solar PV owners only be paid the wholesale market value of electricity for all generation their systems produce.
