Once again the government has upset the Solar Industry. This is the third time in as many years.
On the 6th of May 2011 it was announced that the REC’s would be reduced from 4x to 3x on top of the previous announcement that the REC’s would be dropping to 4x a year early.
One of the reasons for the REC’s being dropped is the amount that are being generated and the clearing house not being able to sell them quick enough. Now part of this may be to do with the Clean energy Council allowing solar installers to getting away with having unqualified staff installing systems.
For mind It would be nice if the Clean energy council would do a bit more to make sure that scrupulous operators are held accountable to do the right thing, for the industry.
