While some politicians are using the South Australian blackout to spread politically motivated misinformation, the experts are saying that more local renewables like solar and storage are key to avoiding future blackouts and ensuring a secure energy future.
It's clear we need an orderly and nationally coordinated transition to renewable energy and the Homegrown Power Plan is the robust, credible policy roadmap that will get us there.
The Homegrown Power Plan includes:
- A plan for an orderly transition to 100% renewable electricity by 2030
- Economic modelling that shows we would save $9 billion per year on averted fuel costs
- A national fair price for solar owners to encourage more solar
- Support for "distributed" energy like rooftop solar and storage
Can you share the Homegrown Power Plan with Australia's energy ministers ahead of the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) meeting on Friday 7 October?
