Queensland goes to the polls on November 25 so Solar Citizens has taken a close look at where the major parties stand on Queensland’s renewable energy future and three key policy priorities.

This election, we’re calling on all political parties to move towards 100% clean energy by committing to three key promises:

  1. Set a strong renewable energy target
    Legislate a renewable energy target to ensure that, by 2030, at least 50% of the electricity generated in Queensland comes from solar, wind and other renewables.
  2. Build big solar - not new coal power
    Renewable energy is now the cheapest, cleanest source of electricity. The next state government should support new large-scale solar and wind farms and rule out an expensive, polluting new coal fired power station.
  3. Help more Queenslanders go solar
    To meet the target of one million solar rooftops by 2020, the next Queensland government must  guarantee a fair price for the electricity that solar households feed into the grid and remove the roadblocks for low-income earners, businesses and communities who want to go solar.
