Liberals say ‘yes’ to more solar power

I'm here at a company called Imdex which is a West Australian company that has grown now to have customers around the world Employs around 400 people

Very sophisticated in mining services and mining technology And in that tradition they have installed solar panels on the roofs here What's proposed is we'll offer businesses a rebate of $40,000, it's a significant rebate, on installing a large system on to these roofs Larger than what would go into any household in Western Australia We are capping that, it's going to be limited

It will apply for a three-year period But we expect the uptake to be very very significant It will save energy for firms Provide income to firms if they sell it elsewhere It helps the environment

It meets our renewable requirements and importantly it meets it in a stable, reliable, low-cost manner for the firm and for the community Our electricity bill is around about $180,000 a year And by converting over to solar we're going to be saving $60,000 per annum And over the life of the lease here that will work out to be in excess of a million dollars worth of savings
