Solar Incentive

On the 7.30 Report, Prof David Mills, says solar power can provide 90% of our electricity, if only governments provide some support. In the effort to reduce greenhouse emisisons, lots of money is being thrown at clean coal, which is not yet proven, while many believe there should be more support for solar - which is ready now.

In the report, it was mentioned that SA is the only state with a "feed-in" tariff (a bonus rate paid to people putting solar power into the grid). But don't despair Queenslanders, our state government has announced its own Solar Bonus Scheme, which will take effect this year.
