This summer, Solar Citizens is aiming to raise $30,000 for our 2017 Solar Fighting Fund. Will you help us reach our goal by chipping in today?
Australia is the sunniest continent on earth, and here at Solar Citizens our mission is to see the whole country put those amazing solar resources to good use. Instead, we’ve seen attacks on solar and renewables coming thick and fast.
We have a federal government intent on abolishing highly effective renewables agencies that are growing solar in Australia; we've seen key politicians rubbishing solar and spreading misinformation in the media; and, of course, big power companies are still clawing at the rights of solar owners, proposing unfair charges and solar taxes left, right and centre.
When solar-lovers fight back, we are powerful. Thousands of Solar Citizens came together to save the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA), and together, we successfully saved $800 million in crucial renewables funding. What's more, over the past two years we've stood up to the big power companies every time, rolling back proposals for unfair charges and solar taxes in every state of Australia.
We're determined to keep packing a punch for solar in 2017. Your donation will help us train hundreds more volunteers to speak to their MPs and in the media, run more community events and supercharge our efforts to grow the Solar Citizens movement across Australia.
