19 Jun 2009 2:32 AM

Homeowners wanting to go green may see red after Climate Change Minister PENNY WONG confirmed yesterday there'll be no rebate for solar panels for some months.

The green energy sector has warned that hundreds of workers could get the sack because of delays in the government's plans .. after a scheme to massively boost renewable energy was put on hold.

The Senate has put off a vote on the Renewable Energy Target scheme until August at the earliest.

The news comes as the government is struggling to get its climate change agenda up .. with two major climate policies now likely to be held up in the Senate.
