I’m Jane, a solar owner living in Chisholm. I am passionate about my 5kw Solar System which I installed last year, and I just love the idea that I can produce energy from the sun to power the energy needs of my home. It is empowering to know that – as individuals who are often small in big issues – we can can make a difference simply by powering our own homes with solar, with the very appealing added bonus of generating significant energy cost savings.
But, Governments in Australia today are not embracing policies to support and grow solar power and other renewables. Our renewable energy future in Australia is currently under threat of being derailed. That’s why I’m attending “Our Solar At Risk” on 19th June. I want to join other passionate, concerned people to talk about solar issues – including tariffs and jobs in the solar industry – and to take real action to protect solar.
- WHEN: June 19, 2014 at 6:30pm – 8:30pm
- WHERE: RMIT University Design Hub Multipurpose Room, 515-537 Swanston St, Melbourne, VIC
- Nigel Morris, solar industry expert, and Director of Solar Business Services
- Lindsay Soutar, solar campaigner, and Director of Solar Citizens

Tickets are free but limited!
To me, the Federal Government’s decisions to axe the Renewable Energy Association and review the renewable energy target don’t make sense. Thousands of families in Victoria want to make the move to solar, and these changes will be detrimental to growing solar in our State. Instead, we can all just expect higher electricity prices. If the Government wanted to do the right thing, it would be helping families make the move to solar – not stalling the growth of solar across Australia!
This event is the first time Solar Citizens will be getting together in large numbers to hear from solar experts, who will bust solar myths and explain what we can do to fight back against the biggest threats to solar, and I want to be part of it.
That’s why I’ll be at RMIT Uni on the 19th of June. Will I see you there? RSVP right now and take a stand the big energy companies.
We can keep solar strong in Victoria – it will just take all of us getting together to do it!
