Home solar power collectors are a great invention and will no doubt reduce the demand on coal and gas-powered generation.
Those who are fortunate enough to own their own homes and have the capacity to repay the loan for installation costs are doing a great service to cleaner energy usage and, at the same time, are benefitting from the rebate paid by the power company for passing home-generated power back to the grid.
What about those who are in rented accommodation and those who do not have the capacity to service the loan for solar panels?
No problem, the power companies simply increase the cost per Kw hour to allow them to pay a generous rebate to the solar panel owner.
Such a simple solution, but this means the poor are paying more for power and infrastructure costs than those who are better able to afford panels.
Many were fortunate enough to get subsidised panels to establish a system that effectively disenfranchises the poor who are now subsidising the wealthy. Is this sounds Robin Hood in reverse?
