The owner of Tasmanian Chainsaws and Mowers in Launceston has a lot of common sense and solar panels. With the main power link to the mainland broken solar will be helping out Tas Hydro and all Tasmanians in times of disruption.
Western Australia now has the notoriety of being in the position where more Roof Top Solar power is generated than comes from power generating stations! As a result the WA government is loosing revenue and guess what, Barnett the premier doesn’t like it, so home owners are actually being penalised for having RTS. Further Barnett the silly has allowed Synergy the states power company to re-write the regulations to actively discourage folks from using RTS.
A good friend of mine has 2.4 Kw on his roof and wants increase to 5kw but he is not allowed because his new panels will be a different COLOUR from the originals. Now how stupid is that! This is how far petty pea brained politicians will go to make common sense installation of alternate energy difficult in the sad state of W.A. Its not what one would call a liberal attitude. Protection of coal royalties and generators aside Barnetts actions to discourage roof top solar is just not in the interest of Western Australians or any other Australian for that matter…
When I woke up to hear about the reinstatement of regal honours referred to as knights and dames on the ABC 6am news I cringed and thought it must be April 1st or something. Then when the magnitude of this insanity gelled I realised we are paying this regal aspirant Prince Tony half a million dollars a year to waste civil servants resources reestablishing something that was dead and buried forty years ago. He really doesn’t deserve the job. From attack dog to prince in six months thats quite switch, even the old rusting man of steel thinks its whacky…
This diversionary policy dragged from the annals of time in order of magnitude is about as low as it gets. This wannabe knight is a Rhodes scholar and this is the best he can do? I had my doubts about his credentials when he came out with the remarks during the carbon tax debate “carbon dioxide is invisible, it’s weightless and it’s odourless, was he on acid or something. It is the truth but in the whole debate it was said totally out of context – I have heard better replies from yr 10 students. Are Australians so gullible as to accept this lack of intellect in our elected leaders? It seems we are. When oh when are we going to get some solid intellectual debate, common sense and honesty governing this country. Speaking to acquaintances overseas about Australia they all ask the same question on most subjects Why!
