RENEWABLE ENERGY IS UNDER ATTACK!
South Australia is a renewable energy success story. The state is fast approaching 50% renewables and has booming solar, energy storage, and wind power sectors.

The fossil fuel lobby is prepared to sacrifice South Australian jobs, investment in regional communities, and our climate to protect their own interests.
In Novermber, community members met up at The Joinery in Adelaide to kick off a grassroots campaign to defend South Australia’s renewable energy leadeship.
We’re fired up and ready for action, but we’re going to need a hand… Will you join us at the next meeting of the Yes 2 Renewables Adelaide action group?
You’ll meet fellow community members who want to rollout renewables. Snacks and beverages will be available. And no prior knowledge is needed.
Attendees will find out about our strategy to defend South Australia’s renewable energy leadership, secure jobs and investment, and ramp up action on climate change. Most importantly, we’ll start taking action together.…
