There is growing confusion and frustration in Queensland as the state government seeks to justify new rules that will inevitably add costs to the construction of solar farms, and could make large rooftop solar installations impossible.

Meanwhile, overall rooftop installations fell slightly in April, largely due to the number of public holidays and the Easter break, but all eyes will be on Victoria in the next two months as the state solar rebate scheme is paused.
