National Rally For Renewables on Friday 26th September  

On Friday September 26th renewable communities will rally together in support of the solar and wind industries. With the future of renewable energy still at risk, groups such as the Clean Energy Council and Solar Citizens are intent on taking their message to the people who can make a real difference; Federal MPs.

Key Cabinet ministers in marginal seats have been identified and rallies at their electoral offices will be held at 12pm across Australia, including metropolitan and regional areas.

An event-specific website has been created to promote the Rally For Renewables. Employees from the Solar and Wind industries along with conscientious renewable supporters can register their attendance at any of the proposed events and receive updates regarding future developments on the website.

Citing the public’s approval for the Renewable Energy Target and it’s positive impact on employment and reducing the cost of electricity, the rally website suggests the rights of consumers and the security of renewable businesses are primary factors behind the rally.

“By coming together on September 26, we can show our politicians the real impact to jobs, small and large businesses and families that any cuts to the Target will have in local communities across Australia.”

Solar Sunwerx has been a supporter of Solar Citizens since it was conceived, and attended their Our Solar at Risk Public Meeting in June this year.

Recently the group successfully mobilised their supporters to convinced state governments to back down from proposed reductions to solar feed-in tariffs in both Western Australia and Queensland.

Solar Sunwerx will be attending the Rally For Renewables to help ensure a strong and prosperous future for renewable energy in Australia. Updates will be provided on our Facebook and Twitter pages, so let us know if you’ll be there and say hello if you see us!

Those unable to attend the event can also follow proceedings on social media via the #rallyforrenewables hashtag.
