Our current campaign is to protect one of Australia's most important solar policies: the Renewable Energy Target.
Want to know what you can do to help protect the Renewable Energy Target?
We have a plan to bring the voices of solar-loving Australians together to send a clear message to politicians about the need to protect the Renewable Energy Target. But we need your help. With the Warburton Review having recommended cutting the Target and the government close to a decision on its fate we have no time to lose!
What You Can Do
SIGN THE PETITION TO KEEP SOLAR STRONG
You may have noticed we’ve already got a huge online petition underway. Already more than 25,000 Australians have signed it but we want thousands more.
MEET YOUR LOCAL MP FOR TIME TO SHINE
