With our energy provider you can use your credit to pay your gas bill (if it is with the same provider) ring and ask for a cheque to be sent to you for either the whole amount of credit or just part payment.

John gets solar panels put on his roof
Gets $500 credit instead of a bill.
He already earns a good wage.
John is happy that solar will save him money to
buy that new boat. (fair enough).
Mary rents, she can not afford a house.
Mary's landlord has no interest in getting solar panels for her small apartment.
After all no benefit to him/her the landlord.
Mary gets a bill for $500. Even though she is on low wages
Mary cannot afford to take the kids out for the weekend.
The more Johns there are ..... the more credit will need to be paid to them.
Mean while the power company still needs to employ workers, maintain the grid and pay shareholders. (GGG is not going to that)
The more Mary will have to pay on her bill. It will get worse for Mary .... not better.
Peter the director CEO of power company reports to his shareholders
all expecting a dividend and increase in their investment.
This really is quite a stupid system and is going to lead to trouble down the road.
For John and Mary. Because inequality in society of this sort will come
back to bite everyone on the backside, big time.
I think I might leave this state as soon as I can.
Just had the latest electric bill today from Momentum Energy $363.45 gas dont know yet but saw yesterdays report in paper and not looking forward to it!! Pam

Mass migration to Qld I think!!
