Should we manufacture and export Green Energy to create jobs here in Australia?

By Graeme . Created on 17 Jun, 2020
We have the capacity to capture more solar energy than any other country. We have large amounts of silicon and minerals required to make solar cells and batteries. Why are we making the equipment here and selling it.

Any increase in renewable products is good. Look at the cost and concentrate on those that are economical also. Mix it up so you get the best of each situation.

But this would not work in most other parts of the country...

I really don't understand the poll question to be honest sorry. Call me dumb if you like, but this thing about "green energy" - manufacture and export - well yes we, or some states, use and sell so called green energy at a higher price of course, so does this mean the "export" part of the question? As for the making of the solar panels etc., and exporting them, I find that a bit hard to b...

I voted no just because of the costs of manufacturing here in Australia.

If it could make a profit (as TC says below without any Government subsidies which we the people actually pay for) then absolutely I would agree to it 100%. Any money we can bring into our economy is welcome...

I believe that although solar power is good, we would so better with wind turbines for energy, or ocean currents for hydro electricity. Perhaps all 3 would be the way to go.

Unfortunately these "so called" overseas Green Energy companies are being subsidised by our Government (us) to the tune of billions of dollars and until such time as they can stand on their own two feet and not be "propped up" by tax payers, there has to be a logical balance between green and base load energy.
