SOLAR CITIZENS

Everyday Aussies are leading the renewable revolution—rooftop by rooftop—to cut bills, take energy generation back into our own hands, and create a healthier, better life for everyone.

Solar Citizens is an independent, community-based organisation bringing together millions of solar owners and supporters to take the next step and keep growing renewables in Australia.

Together, we take action to protect the rights of Australia’s 2 and a half million solar homes and businesses, and pursue the largest opportunities for a fast and fair transition to clean, renewable energy.

What's the story?

Over 2 million Australian households and businesses have joined the rooftop revolution, cutting their bills and creating clean energy.

Australia could do better. Find out what’s holding us back from a sun-powered future.
