5 October 2010
Categories: Incentives | Government

This could shed some light on the matter for those who are currently choosing a system or about to get one installed and wondering if they are certain of their 60ct feed in tariff with the new legislation on its way.

If changes to the legislation are put to the Parliament, the Government would propose that an ‘existing customer’ is one who has purchased (or entered into an agreement that could result in a financial loss if terminated) an eligible generator and applied to connect it to the grid before the date changes to the legislation are enacted.

Customers may be asked to provide proof of purchase.

Under existing legislation the Minister for Energy must table the outcomes of the review in Parliament. The report is expected to be tabled later in 2010.

We are Open for Business

Rainbow Power Company would like to assure our customers that we are trading (not quite as normal). System designers are working from home and can customise a quote for you (free of charge) over the phone and online. We are still dispatching and posting items, with safety precautions in place. You can still order online or over the phone, and pick up items from RPC (our show room is closed however, and appointments must be made to pick up orders). We are still doing site inspections, keeping the recommended social distancing.
