If you don't have solar panels on your roof but would love to make a difference, why not switch your energy provider. Check out The Green Electricity Guide by Greenpeace and the Total Environment Centre:
Sign the Petition: Don't Pull the Plug on Solar!
Tell your dirty energy provider to support the Renewable Energy Target (RET) by signing the petition by Greenpeace here: https://www.greenpeace.org.au/action/?cid=71
The Renewable Energy Target (RET) scheme which consists of large-scale and small-scale schemes, is aimed at increasing renewable energy generation and reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the electricity sector. It is designed to deliver the equivalent of 20 per cent of Australia's electricity from renewable sources by 2020. The RET is under threat from the current Federal Government who are at present reviewing the RET in their RET Review - another unnecessary legislative review by the Government.
Tell our Prime Minister to protect the Renewable Energy Target (RET) by signing the petition by Solar Citizens: http://www.solarcitizens.org.au/protecttheret
