Don’t let the sun set on Australia’s renewable energy funding – Sign the petition

12 September 2016

Renewable energy means a bright, cleaner future for all of Australia. The industry needs both supportive laws and Government support to thrive. But vital funding for the industry is currently under serious threat.

The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) contributes funding to renewable energy activities across the country, improving the competitiveness of renewable energy technologies, and increasing the supply of renewable energy in Australia.

At the same time as approving the massive polluting Adani Carmichael coal mine, the Turnbull Government has introduced the “omnibus” savings bill which includes a plan to strip back $1.3 billion of ARENA’s funding – and they are currently chasing support of the opposition.

Without this funding, lots of job creating renewable energy projects are at risk. We cannot let this happen.

SIGN THE PETITION

Stand with us and together let’s tell Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Leader of the Opposition Bill Shorten the people of Australia say NO to stripping ARENA of $1.3 billion in current funding.
