New coal doesn’t stack up – just look at Queensland’s renewable energy numbers

There are calls from the backbench and elsewhere for the federal government to safeguard the future of coal. But do those calls make economic sense? A look at Queensland's energy landscape suggests not.
The latest research suggests that in Australia, rooftop solar photovoltaics are more likely to be adopted by middle-class households.

Are solar panels a middle-class purchase? This survey says yes

Households that are most likely to go solar are those that can afford solar panels, but aren't so rich that they don't have to worry about their electricity bill at all, says a survey of 8,000 homes.
