24-hour clean power!



When Elon Musk, the billionaire founder of clean tech giant Tesla, pledged to help fix South Australia's power crisis by building a 100MWh battery farm in 100 days,1 investors and politicians started falling over themselves to get a piece of the action.

Politicians are finally catching on and realising that clean technology, not fossil fuels, is the way forward.

If there was ever a moment to turn Australia's energy debate on its head, this is it.

Sign the petition to tell Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull you want clean 24-hour power!

With state renewable energy targets in the Turnbull Government's sights, and the Murdoch press practically drooling over the thought of publicly-funded coal-fired power plants, we'll need to be more vigilant than ever to defend the progress we've made.

Fortunately, research shows that renewable energy and battery storage is now cheaper than coal and gas. So let's show the fossil fuel lobby the door and get on with the job of building clean, reliable, and affordable 24-hour power.
While countries around the world capture the benefits from the renewable energy industry boom, the Federal Government still has no plan to invest in the clean, safe, and affordable energy future we need. So we came up with one for them.

The GetUp member-funded Homegrown Power Plan – a joint project between GetUp and Solar Citizens – shows how we can repower the country with 100% renewable energy by 2030.

How? By rebooting our failing electricity market, removing the roadblocks holding us back, and investing in renewable energy.

Transitioning our electricity system to 100% renewable power is practical, achievable, economically sound, and overwhelmingly popular. Our government is being left behind, and it's about time they caught up.

SIGN THE PETITION


We call on State and Federal Governments to:

  • Commit to 100% renewable power by 2030

  • Stop big energy companies from ripping off everyday Australians, and

  • Plan for the orderly closure of coal-burning power stations with a just transition for communities and workers.
