Take a selfie to Stand Up For Solar

Australians love their solar - there's over 5 million of us living under a solar roof! So why not show that love with a solar selfie? It's a great way for decision-makers to put a face to some of those 5 million solar-owners, and the millions more who support getting clean energy from the sun.

Energy from the sun, our life force, is free and clean, and absolutely renewable. It is unconscionable that our government chooses not to use it, but rather to blight the earth with coal mines and non-renewable energy.

Solar  makes sense. These children are inheriting a world that has to be managed in an  enlightened way. Solar research into efficiencies and smart use is only starting. It needs funding.

Solar and alternative technologies research should be at the top of the list for both governments and private enterprise, and we should begin the process of moving away from coal in the medium to long term...

I'm standing up for Solar because the energy distributor in my area (Singapore Power owned Ausnet Services) penalises its customers for installing solar, in part to avoid the need to upgrade its aging infrastructure to return energy to the grid. I investigated going solar PV to help the planet but, if I did, my weekday kWh power cost would have gone up 26% (when taken off my flat rate and put on their absurd 07:00-23:00 Mon-Fri "peak period") then charged $ hundreds to reconnect to the grid for a click a virtual switch. The privatisation of Victoria's energy industry is a consumer and environmental disaster.

Who gets my next election vote is contingent on taking climate change and the renewables sector (which is the new industrial revolution on which Australia is missing out due to Coal-ition governments) seriously.

Monika, WA

Some of the most important reasons why I'm standing up for solar;
 
Because I want to live in a sustainable and healthy environment, and to stop the climate change from reaching catastrophic global warming.  To safe the Great Barrier Reef and the Galilee basin from being destroyed by Adani's coal mine.  Solar power is the future of clean energy, no digging, no CO2 emission, and it's everywhere I go.  I love to see sun powered countries.
 
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to make my voice count.

Peter, Augusta 6290

Seven years ago I had solar panels placed on the roof of my home at Augusta and at the same time, a hot water electric heat pump installed and since then I have not paid an electricity bill, in fact I've had money back.  Financially, it is one of the best things I have done in my life. I have encouraged my children to do the same thing.
