    Yeah, ask our LEEDER why Roof Top Solar will attract 8 cents per kWh for any excess fed to the grid, but when any amount of that excess is sent back it costs 26 cents per kWh. Can this be classed as price GOUGING. Is a 309% mark-up by a Government Enterprise democratic?

    Why not charge 8 cents plus a small margin for returned power and charge the rest at normal rates, remembering that the service charges still apply?

    How much disincentive is there to install solar in this scenario, and how many jobs have been foregone due to this policy?

    How much rage will be forthcoming when 18,000 + Solar customers realise that their power accounts have increased by 18 cents per kWh from next January totalling about $200-300 per quarter?

    Will these questions be answered, or will the insulator be kicked down the road, ie be sent to another enquiry?

    Rubbish, neither O’Connor, nor White nor Hodgman are capable of putting foward what should be reliable plans for the state for the year ahead. The City Deal has not be approved nor financed by the Feds.

    Possibly the only reliable source of information would be from political all rounder Sue Hickey but it is not all good news as Tasmania as far as getting up to scratch with public infrastructure goes remains as dragging its feet for which has continued for most of the time this century.

    There was talk of getting the Antarctic centre to move to Mac Point, not a hope in hell the new Mayor of Kingborough has sufficient political sway to stop that in its tracks.
