The ACT Government has recently launched a major discussion paper in the energy sector – the proposal to expand the electricity Feed-In Tariff Scheme.
The Feed-In Tariff discussion paper deals with a possible expansion to include installations beyond the existing capacity limit of 30kW. Among the issues outlined in the paper are how an expanded tariff would help reduce the ACT’s greenhouse gas emissions, its effect on the creation of jobs in the clean economy and how it would impact electricity bills.
The ACT Government welcomes community views on this important topic that will shape Canberra’s energy sector future.
Consultation on the proposal to extend the Feed-in Tariff Scheme closes on 28 February 2010.
Copies of the discussion paper are available to download from www.environment.act.gov.au/energy or for more information contact Canberra Connect on 13 22 81 and ask for the Feed-in Tariff Secretariat.
