Solar Citizens


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

Our vision is for an Australia where everyone is enjoying the financial and health benefits of clean technology: renewable energy, clean transport, and electrified homes.

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.
