PowerAccess: Clean, Cheap Energy for All

The upcoming South Australian election is an opportunity to not just speed up the transition to powering our state with the sun, wind and waves but to make sure our politicians are committed to ensuring every South Australian can access the benefits of low-cost renewable energy.

That’s why we need all South Australian politicians to commit to establishing PowerAccess, a government-owned non-profit retailer for South Australians currently on low-incomes to push down bills and expand access to energy efficiency, solar and storage.

In launching PowerAccess we spoke to leading social welfare advocates like Mark Henley from Uniting Communities, he told us:

“Too often in the energy debate, the most vulnerable South Australians are ignored even though they are the most harshly affected by increasing power bills. A dedicated non-profit retailer operating in the public interest could help correct this. Similar models are operating and being expanded in Scotland and doing this in South Australia could unlock cheaper and clean power for those who are currently missing out.”

Can you join our call for a publicly-owned, non-profit retailer in South Australia?

You can read our joint media release with Uniting Communities and the Community Power Agency here & read the Community Power Agency’s policy briefing note here.

Will you sign?

Dear South Australian politicians and candidates,

I support the next South Australian Government establishing a publicly-owned, non-profit retailer for low-income South Australians that will reduce power bills and offer access to energy efficiency, solar and storage, so that everyone can benefit from clean, cheap power. I urge you to commit to establishing a publicly-owned, non-profit retailer if elected at the March 2018 South Australian election.

Yours sincerely,
