Green power slugged new tax
Three days into the introduction of the Carbon Tax and the very thing it is meant to promote, green and renewable energy, is being taxed by Synergy. Paul Murray spoke to Andrew Gaspar from Synergy about the application of the tax to renewable energy users.
To Corpo speak makes me puke.
I am simply showing where the problem lies that has caused GreenPower customers to be liable for the carbon costs they have paid to avoid.
I don't agree with how the system allocates the reduced emissions of GreenPower across all customers and have advocated for years that the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency make reforms to protect GreenPower customers in advance of the start of carbon pricing.
I am a GreenPower paying customer, not an accountant.Tim Kelly Monday 9 July, 2012 - 7:59 AM
Tim Kelly, spoken like a true accountant. "a poles to wire issue"!!! WHAT?!! Do you have a clue what this is about? Imagine you spent $2500 replacing 15 halogen downlights in your house. No rebate, no incentive, you just did it to be green. Imagine the government then placed a tax on people who ran LED lights! Huh, what's that Tim? You don't understand...well guess what, I agree with you - you don't understand.corpo speak makes me puke Tuesday 3 July, 2012 - 6:51 PM
The only way to take Australia back to zero emissions would be to send everyone besides Aborigines back to where they originated from. Including Julia Gillard and Wayne Swan. No cars, or factories. No farms, or mines - everything restored and replanted to original condition. Sound ridiculous? Well how does it sound that by paying money to the government and carbon traders, somehow pollution will be reduced? Do you really think a company will invest in new unproven technology, instead of just pass the cost on, maybe at a markup? Do you think the cost of this will be borne by business or by the end user, the consumer, you and me? Do you believe in fairies?Max Tuesday 3 July, 2012 - 6:43 PM
And so it begins. this is only the tip of the iceberg as far as rorts and over charging goes.Peter of Darwin Tuesday 3 July, 2012 - 1:14 PM
The issue is about how emissions are allocated to consumers through National and state accounting frameworks.
The reduced emissions benefits of GreenPower renewables are allocated across all consumers, they are not allocated to the greenpower paying customer.
This is not a poles and wires issue, it is an accounting issue.Tim Kelly Tuesday 3 July, 2012 - 12:56 PM
