South Australians Get Rebates for Installing Solar Panels for Renewable Energy

South Australia [Ferret.com] The South Australian Rann Government had a new feed-in solar rebate, which will increase the incentive for people installing solar panels on their roofs and get clean energy from the sun. Under the legislation, householders will be paid upward to double the basic electricity retail cost for putting excess solar ability backwards into the mains electricity grid. It is estimated that the Australian electricity network needs $24 billion in infrastructure over the next five years, and the prospect of using solar power to ease the burden on the grid is interesting both Governments and consumers alike.
