HUNDREDS of homeowners rushed to take advantage of the generous solar power rebate before it was scrapped on Monday night.
The Queensland Government announced last month a plan to reduce the solar power rebate from 44 cents per kilowatt hour to 8 c/kW.
Existing solar power customers will be entitled to stay on the 44 c/kW rate until 2028.
Energy Matters reported a very busy weekend in the lead-up to Monday night's deadline with telephone lines running hot accomodating the last-minute rush.
In an online statement, the company predicted the final spike in solar customers would give installers enough work for a few months.
