A new survey of renters by tenant advocacy organisation Better Renting finds that renters are keen to share in the benefits of rooftop solar, although worries about rent increases are a sticking point.
The survey findings are documented in our report, “Solar Flair: renters’ views on rooftop solar”. The report, based on a survey of 196 renters, shows that those who have or have had solar are overwhelmingly positive about its impact on their lives, citing both financial and environmental benefits. However, the report also highlights the need for government intervention to address renters' concerns, particularly around potential rent increases.
The report is available here.
