Behind closed doors

This is it. Right now the future of solar is in the hands of only six politicians – and yours.

In the coming days three government ministers will sit down with three Labor ministers deep inside Parliament House in Canberra to decide the future of the Renewable Energy Target.

They’re meeting behind closed doors to discuss Australia’s most successful policy for solar and renewables – and with them preparing for discussions right now, we want you to show them Australia will be watching.

Tell our negotiators that you want them to stay strong for Aussie solar – take a minute to write your personal message on their Facebook pages:

You can send your Facebook messages by posting on each politician’s page or by sending them a direct message. When they see our messages popping up on their pages, there will be no doubt that our eyes will be on them when the negotiations get underway.

The Federal government has waged a campaign to destroy solar and the Target this year, but together Solar Citizens all over Australia have stood up. We’ve signed petitions, written letters and emails, made phone calls, met with politicians and rallied to demand our politicians give solar a fair go.

We’re making progress. Our actions led to the government binning its dodgy, hand-picked Warburton review. We’ve forced them to the negotiating table with the growing realisation that they’re out of touch with what the community wants – and the community wants more solar and renewables, not less.

Now we need to make ourselves heard again so these negotiations result in protecting, not undermining, the Renewable Energy Target. Write your Facebook message to the key negotiators today by clicking on the links below:

When it comes down to it, this decision is about the livelihoods of solar workers, the right of Australians to go solar and take control of their energy bills, and for Australians to take the power back from the government and big energy companies.

Thank you for everything you’ve done so far. We’re getting closer, so let’s lock in a strong solar-powered future.

Claire, National Director

P.S. Just two weeks ago the government’s Cabinet Ministers binned the recommendations of its own dodgy, hand-picked Warburton review which suggested cutting or scrapping the Renewable Energy Target. They finally realised Australians won’t accept its extreme anti-solar agenda and want the Target protected. By flooding the Facebook pages of the six politicians who will sit at the table in coming days to negotiate the fate of the Target, we can make sure they don’t forget us when they’re behind closed doors. Write a message (or six!) on the Facebook pages of the key negotiators today.
