Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2015 Week 07 Hansard (Thursday, 4 June 2015) . . Page.. 2059 ..


In closing, I would like to thank the university for working closely with government to develop the new leasing model. I would also like to thank officers in the Chief Minister, Treasury and Economic Development Directorate, the Justice and Community Services Directorate and, of course, the Parliamentary Counsel’s Office for working collaboratively with the Environment and Planning Directorate to bring this bill to fruition.

The bill will enable the University of Canberra to develop its 117-hectare campus into a world-class educational facility. These changes show that the government is serious about supporting the tertiary education sector and encouraging investment in the ACT through responsible and innovative urban renewal. I commend the bill to the Assembly.

Electricity Feed-in Tariff Schemes Legislation Amendment Bill 2015

Debate resumed from 14 May 2015, on motion by Mr Corbell:

That this bill be agreed to in principle.

MS LAWDER (Brindabella) (11.57): I will speak briefly on the Electricity Feed-in Tariff Schemes Legislation Amendment Bill 2015. This bill alters the laws applying to large-scale energy generators such as wind and solar farms and laws applying to small-scale generation such as rooftop solar panels. It places a final date of 31 December 2016 on the installation and connection of rooftop solar panels under the now closed feed-in tariff scheme. It also introduces changes to accommodate new technology such as battery storage and prevents consumers from storing electricity from the grid during off-peak times and selling it back to the grid at a profit during peak times.
