Malcolm Turnbull's N.S.W. electorate of Wentworth has the nation's
lowest take up of solar panels.

electorate of Lalor, in Melbourne's western suburbs scored the Number 2
spot; 25,000 households installed solar PV or hot water systems.
Mortgage belt and marginal seats where families are sensitive to rising electricity prices have embraced solar panels.

Victor, what about you? You are a decent bloke who cares for the environment. Where is your solar panel? Ah, same problem.
The essence is that many Green voters do not have the right property to install solar panels. Even if they do, they possibly rent rather than own, especially given the age demographic of Green voters. The above clip is really a lot of nonsense, but perhaps believed by some who will quickly use to take a potshot at a Green voter.
