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 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.
Mark and Miranda held a sunny Sunday Solar Shindig in the electorate of Kooyong.
Port Stephens residents held a well attended Solar Shindig over the weekend and even made the local news! Read about it here: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-07-20/port-stephens-residents-show-support-for-solar/6632316
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.
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.
It was with great pleasure that Cairns Climate Action Network (CCAN) partnered with Solar Citizen to hold Australia's first Stand up for Solar Shindig. On the day Event Manager Andy Mack interviewed Rob Pyne MP, Member for Cairns, about Solar Energy, Climate Change and Sea Level Rise. CCAN is pleased to confirm that Mr Pyne is actively working toward Climate Change mitigation through the promotion of Solar Energy.
