Here is some sample text prepared by AuSES
I am deeply concerned about the NSW decision to tear up the feed in contract the NSW Government has with the people of NSW.
I made an investment decision based on the rules laid out by the government. Now I am going to be punished for following the rules.
I am not alone. Over 120,000 households and businesses have invested large sums ($3,500 to $75,000) based on this legally binding promise, including a substantial amount in regional NSW.
Changing the rules retrospectively like this goes against the rule of law and fatally undermines public trust in government.
You need to act to restore fairness in NSW and protect the reputation of the state as a safe, stable place to invest and do business.
Do not allow this change to be made.
Vote no to retrospective cuts to solar, and yes to an immediate a 1:1 feed in tariff in NSW.
