Scrambling solar signals

Talk that the poor are disadvantaged by solar subsidies is misleading and only serves to discourage investment in an industry crucial to a more sustainable future.

It is deeply troubling that AGL continues to suggest low income households, such as pensioners, are now paying more for their electricity to enable Australians to get solar. This is simply not true.

If we rewind, to a bit over two years ago, before AGL tried to deflate the solar PV industry, many Australians were saving, begging and borrowing money or using their hard-earned savings to buy a rooftop solar system.
