Vote 1 Solar for 100% renewable power by 2030
This election we're calling on all Australian political parties and candidates to commit to 100% renewable power by 2030.
The Homegrown Power Plan shows that the orderly transition to 100% renewable electricity by 2030 is practical and achievable, and it will mean a better, fairer power system and lower electricity bills for everyone.
Sign the petition today to call on all parties and candidates to get Australia on the path to a clean, sun-powered future.
Here’s how we’ll get to 100% clean, renewable power:
1. Build big solar
The best way to build big solar and renewable energy in the right places, for the right price, is with national reverse auctions. They're just like regular auctions except the lowest bid wins, not the highest. This policy has a proven track-record in the ACT, which is set to deliver 100% renewables by 2020!
2. Create a national fair price for solar
Solar households only get paid 20% of the price charged by big power companies for surplus power fed back to the grid. Solar homes benefit the whole community by generating local energy for their neighbours to use, so they deserve a fair price in return.
3. Fund community owned power
Not everyone can install solar on their rooftop. That’s why we need a federally funded program that kickstarts local, community renewable energy projects in towns and suburbs across the country, so more people can benefit from clean, cheap sun-power.
4. Protect and expand the Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC) and Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA)
It’s time to turbo-charge Australia’s most successful clean energy bodies. ARENA gives grants that make sure innovative clean energy technologies can get to market and the CEFC, our very own green bank, invests to help build them. And get this, the CEFC actually makes us money. How good is that?!
