Defend the RET

Paul and Denise from Wirrabara SA_Our PV panels and solar hotwater system_PubsWebMedia_123The repeal of the carbon tax means that now more than ever we need to show politicians in Canberra that there is strong support for renewable energy in Australia.

The Renewable Energy Target (RET) has helped millions of Australian households install solar PV, solar hot water and hot water heat pumps and has generated millions of dollars in investment and thousands of jobs throughout Australia.

In addition, analysis by the federal government’s handpicked modelling firm shows that after 2020 all consumers, even those without installed renewable energy, will have lower electricity bills if the RET is maintained.

With a new Senate making important decisions about Australia’s renewable energy future, it is important that we redouble our efforts and make the case for extending and expanding the RET.

Show your support for renewable energy by letting your MPs know that you, along with millions of Australians, want them to protect and expand the RET, so it can continue to build a future of renewable, clean energy in Australia.
