Lighter Footprints members Carolyn, Jenny and Peter attended the rally protesting against the Victorian Governments disappointing feed-in tariff legislation.
Unfortunately, the Brumby government's tariff only pays producers for the "net energy" they export to the grid, rather than the "gross energy" they produce to reduce emissions. They have also capped the tariff to systems less than 2kW, for reasons which are unclear.
This means that the feed in tariff will benefit almost nobody! The cap should be removed and the tariff should apply to gross metering.
