$1.1bn wasted on solar power

By using documents obtained from the federal Environment Department, the researchers found 66 per cent of the solar systems installed under the program were on homes in suburbs with at least a ”medium-high” socio-economic status.

All solar panel systems installed under the program combined reduced Australia’s emissions by just 0.015 per cent, and cost up to $301 per tonne of carbon saved – hundreds more than the cost of emissions reductions with a carbon price.
