Change for the better – building a clean energy economy from July 1
From July 1, we start a big change in our economy - moving to larger scale production of clean energy, protecting carbon in our soils and forests and helping people and businesses save money by saving energy.
We're giving businesses an incentive to change to a cleaner way of doing business. The Clean Energy Act makes them pay for the pollution they generate and we're helping Australians by using some of those funds to lift the tax free threshold and increase payments to households. We call it taxing what the polluters burn, not what you earn.
