“Victoria in the dark on solar

The Victorian Auditor-General has found the state government’s signature billiondollar solar rebate scheme has yet to produce evidence it benefited consumers or reduced carbon emissions.

In a scathing report, Andrew Greaves said the program was launched without a business case and insufficient consultation with industry and without considering whether there was any need for government intervention in the solar market.

He said the launch of the $1.3bn 10-year Solar Homes program failed to grasp and mitigate the obvious risks of excess demand, market reliance and grid capacity.”
