Tell the Government to Stop the Sun Tax

Right now the Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) is considering a proposal for charging solar owners to export to the grid – in effect, taxing the sun.

Currently solar households and businesses are not charged when they export power but if these new rules are successful, solar owners could be slugged every time they pump clean energy into the grid. We should be encouraging more people to make the solar switch, not penalising those who have made a smart investment in clean technology.

Big coal and gas generators don't have to pay for pumping dirty electricity into the network, so why should Aussie solar homes and businesses? 

We're calling on the Federal Government to reject proposals that would allow blanket exporting fees to be slapped on solar owners, and instead:

  • Invest in network infrastructure, like community-scale battery storage, so that more homes can invest in rooftop solar.
  • Help more renters, people living in apartments and low-income households access cheap solar energy.
