ACTPLA throwing a spanner in the solar panel works

By johnboy 17 October 2011 2

The Liberals’ Alistair Coe has a bee in his bonnet over delays in solar panel installation.

“I’ve been contacted by constituents who have to wait until February 2012 for ACTPLA’s approval of their panels,” Member for Ginninderra Alistair Coe said today.

“After ACT Labor cut the scheme early, people are now being forced to wait for the benefits they were promised.

“This is yet another broken commitment under this failed scheme.

“It’s another reason why the ACT’s solar feed-in-tariff has proved to be one of the most inefficient and unequitable programs in the country.

“People who can’t pay for the upfront costs for solar panels will still be hit by the $225 electricity cost rise caused by the scheme, while those who did won’t even be rewarded in a timely manner.

“This is yet another shambolic, expensive mess for taxpayers caused by ACT Labor under this scheme,” Mr Coe concluded.

I had solar panels installed. ACTPLA were notified in September 2016 it’s now Jan 4 and still waiting for ACTPLA to approve the installation…..

But while ever my meter is spinning backwards I dont actually care….

Why is it so easy to see both sides of this – ACTPLA scrambling to keep up with the rush from a poorly planned and implemented scheme that is the child of both the locals and the Feds?
