The 'smarts' behind a million solar roofs

The Hollow Men episode that never made it to air: How'd we end up with a rebate program for a million solar roofs when we already had a program in place that would deliver... a million solar roofs?

Rebates are dumb, there’s no two ways about it. As the Grattan Institute report Learning the Hard Way illustrated, they’ve been used as a political quick-fix that often hurts as much as helps further a particular emissions abatement technology.

The problem is that they don’t provide long-term, predictable growth for industry investment and, at the same time, they lack any clear link to social or environmental objectives, as well.
