Rally for Renewables, this Friday 26 Sept, 12pm

We've been contacted by Amanda Sully & Jack Gilding, with this message:

I’m writing today with urgent news. As you know, the very future of solar and renewable energy in Australia is at risk. 

The Renewable Energy Target (RET), a hugely successful policy which says that at least 20% of Australia’s energy should come from renewable sources by 2020, has helped over 1.3 million Australians go solar. But next week Cabinet ministers will decide the fate of the Target and all signs suggest they want it gone. This is despite more than 80% of Australians being in favour of the Target.

Tasmania has enormous potential for economic development through future renewable energy projects and has the most to lose if the RET is reduced. Crucial decisions will be made in the next few weeks and the votes of Tasmanian Senators will be vital to a successful outcome.
The National Rally for Renewables will be held across Australia at key Cabinet Ministers’ electorate offices.  In Hobart it is:

DATE: Friday, September 26
TIME: 12 midday
LOCATION: Office of Senator Eric Abetz, 136 Davey St, Hobart
