Take a seat on the solar-coaster

It’s time solar PV was treated as genuine, real-deal option to solve all sorts of energy problems. While those in positions of authority seem to still think it's a dinky curiousity they can turn on and off depending on their mood, people power is likely to overwhelm them.

Over the years, support for solar PV at state and federal levels has ebbed and flowed, as anyone who’s taken a ride on the ‘solar-coaster’ would attest. Just recently the Climate Change Authority proposed that support for solar be changed every year with just six months notice based on a minister's assessment of a ten-year payback. This would institutionalise the solar-coaster as a new report I co-authored has found.
