The NSW Greens have today launched a $1.25 billion comprehensive plan to ensure at least one million extra households in NSW can either install solar panels or be part of community renewable energy schemes within four years.Â
Greens MP and environment spokesperson Cate Faehrmann said in a press release the plan will combat the impacts of climate change on the environment.
â€śWe are seeing the devastating impacts of climate change now. Thatâ€™s why we need more ambition for household solar,â€ť she said.Â
â€śThe Greens household solar plan will make it mandatory for all new dwellings to either have solar power and batteries or pay into a community renewable energy offset scheme.â€ť
â€śOur plan will also provide a $2000 rebate for rooftop solar and batteries for up to 500,000 households and build solar panels on all public housing,â€ť MsÂ Faehrmann said.
Greens energy spokesperson Sue Higginson said the plan will also apply to renters.
â€śThe Greens $1.25 billion plan ensures that households which have been locked out of solar power, such as apartment dwellers and renters, can support renewables and save on their electricity bills through a community solar offset scheme,â€ť she said.Â
â€śWe want to ensure 1 million households in NSW can either install solar panels on their home, or be part of a community solar offset scheme, within the next four years and be paid a fair price for the power they produce.â€ť
