Solar's electric price shock

The NSW regulator’s proposal to downgrade the price paid for solar PV generation has ignored underlying flaws with our electricity market that will cost consumers and the solar PV industry.

With huge ramifications for the viability of the sector, the NSW utility regulator, IPART, has judged that there should be one rule for those that sell electricity to consumers, and another for consumers who produce electricity.
