Solar rebate scheme offers benefits for emitters, not environment

The new solar rebate announced by Peter Garrett will not reduce Australia’s emissions by one kilogram below the five per cent emissions target announced in the White Paper because, under the CPRS, the unfortunate reality is that every time households reduce their energy use or install solar panels, all they will be doing is freeing up permits, which will in turn allow big polluters to increase their emissions.
