>>Invest in Solar Thermal

Right now there’s a proposal on the table to replace two of the highest polluting coal fired power stations in Australia with solar thermal. Building Australia’s first solar thermal plant in Port Augusta will help create hundreds of new jobs – and reduce harmful emissions that are contributing to climate change. It will deliver local investment and will do a great deal to mitigate long-standing community concerns about health issues related to the coal fired power plant.

There’s only one group of people who are yet to get behind it, and that’s the Government. Email your ALP MP using our tool [visit the web page] and ask them to commit to using our two existing renewable energy funds (ARENA and the CEFC) to fund Australia’s first solar thermal power plant.
