Households with solar panels will continue to receive one of the country's most generous financial rewards for the next three years, under a state government proposal.
Energy Minister Bryan Green released an issues paper this morning on the future of the solar feed-in tariff after Aurora Energy, which pays the tariff to customers, is disbanded at the end of this year.
Mr Green said the existing solar feed-in tariff of 27 cents per kilowatt of energy should be guaranteed for existing solar customers for three years.
Households who install solar panels after this year would receive a lower rate to be set by the independent economic regulator.
''The Government wants to provide certainty for Tasmania’s solar customers and industry and is committed to establishing supporting arrangements that ensure any transition is managed in a sensible and equitable way,'' Mr Green said.
