It's a tumultuous time for renewable energy in Australia.
On one hand, the Abbott government has mounted an unrelenting attack on the national Renewable Energy Target, and marginal politicians in the senate are seeking to demonise the wind energy sector.
On the other, the new Daniel Andrews government is committed to growing the renewable energy sector, which will create good jobs while cutting polluting fossil fuels.
Friends of the Earth's Yes 2 Renewables campaign for 100% renewable energy in Victoria (ASAP!) has been in the thick of it—defending renewables from unwarranted attacks and championing policies to rollout renewables.
The wins for wind energy in Victoria, and strong defense of renewables wouldn't have occurred without Yes 2 Renewables' dogged campaigning.
We're geared up to push for more good outcomes for renewable energy in Victoria. But we need your help to keep the campaign going from strength to strength.
Your tax deductible donation will ensure that Friends of the Earth's Yes 2 Renewables campaign is a force for good outcomes.
Yes 2 Renewables punch above its weight when it comes to renewable energy advocacy. Over the next 12 months we will be working to:
- Defend wind energy from political attacks and ensure that the current senate wind energy inquiry is the last.
- Secure a Victorian Renewable Energy Target for our state – growing good jobs while cutting pollution.
- Support Victorian communities aiming for 100% renewable, such as Woodend and Yackandandah.
