Solar Homes Package
4 June 2019, Mr McCURDY (Ovens Valley): The new boss of Solar Victoria recently announced that the hundreds of households who missed out on the first round of the state government solar subsidies will get their rebates after all. How interesting. Suddenly Labor can find some money to provide rebates for customers who installed panels before 12 April 2019 but not for those who installed after this date, thinking they had to the end of the financial year to claim a rebate. They are still not thinking about all of the local solar businesses out there grappling with a major reduction in jobs and the prospect of letting go of valued employees. If Labor really cared about boosting jobs and businesses, they would allocate more funds for panel rebates up to 30 June as originally promised.
