New Study: Solar Creating Jobs, Reducing Electricity Costs

Before we go ascribing things to cultural differences I’ll point out that roof ownership might be a third higher in Australia then Germany and at equal installation prices Australia’s higher levels of sunshine make solar power about a third cheaper. But what appears to be roughly the same are retail electricity prices. And while an axe has been taken to feed in tariffs and our carbon price was slain on the day of stupid knives, the most important incentive to home solar ownership, the Renewable Energy Target is still currently intact. For a cheaper installation it lowers the cost by about a third. And Australians, on account of how they’re human beings, are kind of dumb and often look at the upfront cost rather than how much something will save or cost them over time.
