The REA has continually worked to progress the solar industry. Initially alone, following the introduction of Feed-in Tariffs (FiTs) in 2010, and then for three years by supporting the STA with detailed policy and press work. REA Solar provides its members with a direct solar offering and is an influential voice in the solar industry.

The forum works closely with Government and its officials on policy areas that affect the deployment of solar including financial incentives, planning, building regulations and taxation. The Solar Forum also engages on technical and training issues.
