Australia's Green Party has accused the Gillard government of shutting down a home solar rebate program to help it achieve a surplus in May's budget.
Late yesterday, the renewable energy bonus program suddenly closed, which offered a $1000 rebate for the solar hot water system and a $600 rebate for the heat pump.
While the plan ended at the end of June, only those who paid the deposit before yesterday were eligible for kickbacks.
After the government allocated $24, the industry had hoped the plan would be extended.
The budget forward estimate for 5 million is 2012/13.
Green Party Senator Christine Milne accused the government of cutting costs in order to achieve the promised budget surplus.
In order to meet the political needs, the government is endangering local manufacturers who are building export markets in the new low-carbon economy, which is a "ridiculous idea ".
Senator Milne said the decision would put great pressure on manufacturers such as Rhine. Rhine employs about 1200 people in Australia.
"They are already under pressure because of the higher Australian dollar," she told reporters in Canberra . ".
