Synergy’s residential renewable energy buyback scheme explained by WA Minister

Posted by gmarkets on 3 September, 2007

Synergy’s residential renewable energy buyback scheme was designed to enable households to meet their electricity needs by installing their own renewable energy system, said Kim Chance, Leader of the House, in the Western Australian Legislative Assembly on 16 August 2007. Limits reflect practicalities: Answering a question from Paul Llewellyn asking why Synergy limited the scheme to home renewable energy systems from 500 watts to five kilowatts in generating capacity connected to the south west interconnected system, Chance replied: “The scheme is designed to enable households to meet their electricity needs by installing their own renewable energy system. The scheme’s lower limit of 500 watts is to enable practical administration of the scheme and to reflect the size of renewable energy systems that households typically wish to install. The scheme’s upper limit of five kilowatts is set to enable most households to fully meet their electricity needs from their own renewable energy system.”
