WIRED – These Dreamers Are Actually Making Progress Building Elon’s Hyperloop – 5 hours ago
Shining a light
I couldn’t let the year come to an end without saying a huge thank you for making 2014 the year when solar owners and supporters raised the rooftops.
Together we’ve rallied in our thousands, written letter after handwritten letter, signed petitions and met with politicians. This year we’ve grown to more than 60,000 Solar Citizens supporters across our nation. Wow!
Here are just a few of many highlights from 2014 and what we’ve achieved together:
The Government is persisting in its attempt to gut or axe the Renewable Energy Target*, but together we’re making a huge difference to our solar future.
One in five Australian households now use solar power and 85% of Australians want to see more solar power on our rooftops. Poll after poll shows that Australia wants more solar and renewables, not less – and the media is paying attention.
So enjoy the season but you and I know there will be more to do come 2015. We won’t stop until the future of solar in Australia is secure and the rights of solar owners are protected. And the best thing is we know you’ll be standing with us – rain, hail or shine. That’s why we’ll win.
From all the team and on behalf of committed Solar Citizens volunteers, thank you for your support and best wishes for the New Year.
Claire, National Director
