The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) was under threat - again. The Federal Government planned to strip $1 billion in funding from ARENA in an 'Omnibus Bill'.
Solar Citizens from across Australia sent over 4,000 emails to our political leaders, calling on them to save ARENA. ARENA has been absolutely crucial in supporting Australia as a global leader in renewable energy research over the past several years, including development of the most efficient solar PV and solar thermal technology in the world.
Together, we saved $800 million of ARENA's funding.
