The Greens have put out a media release bemoaning a decline in the GreenChoice electricity scheme.
“Figures from the Bureau of Statistics released yesterday highlight an alarming drop in the proportion of ActewAGLâ€™s customers buying into the GreenChoice renewable energy scheme â€” from 35% in March â€˜02 to 23% three years later”
Dr. Foskey sees the problem with the scheme, giving people the choice to pay more for the same electricity is never going to be much of a long term play. She a solution… “making it easier and cheaper for people to opt in.”
Hmm, that cost would be offset through the general charges would it?
