Government rebate

1 Reply 10398 Views

I just read today that the Goverment still offers a rebate for feed in tariffs from solar panels. How do we apply for this so it can be added on top off our megre amount agl gives us? With future rises of electricity tariffs will the feed in tariffs rise? Come on agl you can't keep taking and not give back something to your loyal customers. Am I allowed two (now three) questions?
