Much at stake

Despite the review concluding that the RET was working effectively and that reducing the target would result in higher prices to consumers, it still recommended slashing the target.

If the Federal Government goes down this path, it will be much harder for mums, dads and small businesses to install solar power and solar hot water systems to help reduce their power bills.

Not only that, more than 1100 Western Australian solar jobs and dozens of local solar businesses would also be at risk if the policy is cut.

Billions of dollars in investment will be created if the RET is left alone, generating jobs, providing work for contracting businesses and solar installers.

Australians want a solar future, so Tony Abbott, let’s not blow it.
