Responded By: Hon Dr Anthony Lynham MP on 25/09/2018

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House that Queensland is falling behind even third world countries in failing to grasp and promote solar energy as the people's energy.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to alter real estate legislation such that every free standing house sale cannot be finalised until solar panels and storage batteries sufficient for the number of people who might be able to live in that house are installed and operable. Consideration can also be given for flats and rental properties. The actual numbers will need to be determined by the CSIRO or Queensland University.
