ACT starts FIT

Over the weekend the ACT's gross feed-in tariff came into effect. This means households that generate solar power into the grid get paid 50c per kilowatt hour produced (3.88 times the normal electricity rate).

Importantly, it applies to all the solar power produced, unlike the situation here in Queensland.

The Greens, in particular Ronan Lee, have been promoting such a feed-in tariff for Queensland. You can download a copy of his petition.
