The Australian Solar Council is pleased with the 2012 announcement of the renewable energy target by the Climate Change Authority.
Mr Grimes, the CE of The Australian Solar Council, welcomed the target but voiced his concerns quoting
This is one step forward, one step back for solar
The proposal to move Solar Systems above 10 kilowatts into the Large-scale Renewable Energy Target will significantly undermine investor certainty and lead to business plans being ripped up. We need to encourage larger power users to invest in solar and this will be a backward step. The proposal could reduce the ability to delay infrastructure costs and may not reduce wholesale energy costs.
CCA has suggested no changes to solar accreditation which The Australian Solar Council believes will maintain the existing energy monopolies and are bad public policy, delivering less than desirable outcomes.
