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.

I'm a renter, but I want to be a proud solar owner someday soon. Governments need to make solar easier to get for people like me. That's why I'm standing up for solar.

Australia has the highest average solar radiation per square metre of any continent in the world. For our government to choose to ignore this abundant, clean natural resource in favour of fossil fuels is a travesty. Between solar thermal, Solar PV, and other technologies like wind, there is no reason why all of Australia's electricity can't be 100% renewable in the near future. Only vested interests and inertia stand in the way!

I'm standing up for solar because I don't get to vote or choose what happens to our planet. I rely on you humans to keep me safe. Anyway, with the money my people save with their solar installation with battery storage they can buy lots of treats for me!! I want that for doggies everywhere.

I am supporting solar because it is blatantly obvious, Tony Abbott is incapable.
Who ever gets my vote next election better have a good renewable energy policy and a re think of solar rebates.

Australia has so much more potential for solar energy. We are way behind on large scale solar, and many more people want rooftop solar at home. We need clear policies to help renters, unit owners and low-income families as well as companies to play their part in reducing - even eliminating - our greenhouse gas emissions.

Standing up for solar for many reasons - an industry of the future with many job and business opportunities. Clean energy for our future. All those great researchers, inventors, designers of the new and continually improving technology need to know that we appreciate their efforts to problem solve  and come up with solutions that are environment/planet/human friendly but still allow a great standard of living for us. Energy from the sun makes so much sense and it really is a beautiful way to live.

I'm standing up for solar because it's free and clean energy just pouring down on us from the sun. We need to stop the coal barons from pushing around our politicians to attack renewables and approve their dirty coal mines.

Global Warming is about physics and chemistry, so it doesn't matter which political party gets your vote. Over 50% of Australian households already use renewable energy as part of their energy mix. The households of Queensland including 'Bellis,' our home, lead the way in adopting clean, green, sustainable, renewable solar power. It reduces our cost of living! Australian people 'get' the dangers posed by Global Warming and burning fossil fuels, like coal, but governments and big business are letting the game down. Leave coal in the ground, and adopt the 'Zero Emissions Australia' plan:www.zeroemissions.org.au
