strong industry, consumer and government support for FIT schemes, the committee
recommends that the Commonwealth government, through COAG, work as quickly as
practicable to implement a FIT framework that is as far as possible nationally
uniform and consistent.
committee recommends that all governments consider carefully the evidence
received by this Senate inquiry regarding metering, as well as the track record
of existing FIT schemes overseas, in designing a nationally consistent FIT
framework for Australia.
committee recommends that a more regular system of payments to generators be
considered than the annual payments in the proposed bill.
committee recommends that tariff degression rates form part of the nationally
consistent FIT framework, but that there also be capacity for degression rate
'pauses' to be instituted following a rate review procedure.
committee recommends that tariff degression rates be technology-specific.
strongly supporting a nationally consistent feed-in tariff framework, the
