The reason our Power Bills are so high, is because of our money being used to subsidize expensive solar panels for those that can afford it. Nobody is paying for solar with their own money, but relying on the government to dramatically lower their power bill with a solar installation.
That’s called robbing the poor to pay the rich!
This is the 1 simple truth your power company doesn’t want you to know. There is a new policy in 2015 that qualifies home-owners who live in specific post codes to be eligible for $1000’s of Government funding to install solar panels. Has your power company told you that?
When home-owners check whether they qualify at 3Quotes many are shocked that subsidies and rebates a lot of costs associated with installation. With a lot of help from the goverment. You could be on your way to significantly reducing your electric bill in a matter of weeks.
It gets worse, because the Power Companies then have difficulty making all the right adjustments from sunny to cloudy to darkness, at all the odd times of day, so coal or gas is essential to make the difference. We now pay one of the highest rates, about 5 times what the US pay. It may now be cheaper to run a small diesel generator than Baseload power in the ‘burbs.
Solar should only be available off grid, where it belongs.
