“Dear energy-conscious, environmentally-concerned, politically insignificant taxpayer: we have been mandated to reduce the amount we pay you in exchange for the energy you supply directly to our power grid, and so that’s what we’ve done; we’ve reduced it from 7.7 cents per kilowatt hour to 6.6 cents per kilowatt hour. It only works out to be 1.1 cents per kilowatt hour, so no big, right?”
Uh, no – that’s a 17 per cent reduction in my solar rebate. It’s like these people think I never finished grade school.
F**k you, politicians. F**k you very much.
