The Tasmanian Economic Regulator has released a Consultation Paper and is seeking comment on Aurora Energy’s Draft Standing Offer Price Strategy, with respect to its 2016 Standing Offer Pricing Investigation and Determination.
Save Our Solar Tas has responded to the Tasmanian Economic Regulator’s call for submissions, asking for a fair price for solar feed in tariffs.
Unfortunately Aurora Energy’s Draft Standing Offer Price Strategy does not give a fair price for those generating solar power and feeding it into the grid. Therefore our reasoning and arguments are the same as in June 2013, hence our 2013 submission is still valid and has been re-submitted. Read our 2 part submission below:
- Submission to Regulator – Part 1
- Submission to Regulator – Part 2
- Appendix: Liberal Policy statement, Bright Futures Policy, March 2010
We strongly recommend you have your say on this issue too. Submissions are close on 1 April 2016. For more information see the 2016 Standing Offer Pricing Investigation and Determination information on the Tasmanian Economic Regulator’s website. Submissions can be forwarded to:
Office of the Tasmanian Economic Regulator
Level 3, 21 Murray Street, Hobart TAS 7000
With continued persistence from the Tasmanian community, we will see this important issue for solar owners resolved.
