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.

If our politicians won't show the way when it comes to tackling climate change, we have to show them that the citizens they represent take it very seriously indeed.  Our future depends on it.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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!
