Dear Editor

How can a Prime Minister of Australia (of all countries) order our Clean Energy Finance Corporation to stop funding wind power and small-scale solar projects, including household panels?

If there are two potential fuel sources that we have beside dried kangaroo and sheep poo it must be wind and sun.

Tony Abbott’s propping up of the coal industry by hobbling the alternative energy sector has the latter in despair.

Australian Solar Council chief executive John Grimes said on Tuesday that:

March in March 16-3-14 No New Coal Mines  036

No New Coal Mines – The Greens

“A returned Abbott government, particularly one with a majority in the Senate, would spell the end of our industry.”

So this is not just about mad Liberals rubbing in our humiliating international position on carbon pricing.

No this is about a crusading old-energy politician taking aim at the mums and dads and couples next door who want to be part of the boom in rooftop solar panels. This is about exposing such ordinary householders to energy price hikes from dirty energy providers.
