Brisbane Launch

Australians want a sun-powered future. Let's make it happen!

Solar is under threat, with big power companies pushing our government to make decisions that have set solar and renewables back more than a decade. We have a plan for a sun-powered future but first we need to show our politicians that solar is supported by people all around Australia.

Join us for an evening of inspiring speakers and positive action.

The Stand Up For Solar Campaign Launch will include expert speakers, stories from solar owners, and a chance to take action together. Speakers include:
