NO to the government’s NEG


This Friday State governments meet at COAG to decide the fate of the Federal government’s National Energy Guarantee (NEG).

SEIA members & solar installers believe everyone should oppose the NEG because:

  • The NEG does nothing to believably reduce electricity costs for consumers.
  • The NEG does nothing to reduce CO2 emissions from 2021 to 2030.
  • The NEG props up coal fired power emissions for another decade.
  • The NEG has a pathetic emissions reduction target that will not help Australia meet its Paris commitments at lowest cost.
  • The NEG has no mechanism to easily increase the target at any time.
  • The NEG takes a free ride on rooftop solar exports.

Why lock in a decade of flawed policy when we all know Australians deserve better?

More solar = lower prices

We encourage all solar industry members to URGENTLY make their views public about the NEG :

  • Post on social media.
  • Inform your customers
  • Contact your local State & Federal MP.
  • Contact your local newspaper or radio station.
  • If you a member of an industry association, make your views known to them.
