Big energy companies are fuelling the climate crisis, driving up power prices for profit, and threatening communities with plans for new gas extraction.
But Victoria has a huge opportunity to accelerate the shift to 100% renewables and equitably electrify everything to help households and businesses get off expensive and polluting gas.
This decade, game changing renewable energy projects like the Star of the South will start powering over 1 million homes. And more and more people are going solar every day.
We know Victoria can go further and faster on renewable energy to create thousands of jobs, cut emissions and make energy more affordable. But will governments lead?
The International Energy Agency says there can be no more coal, oil or gas development if the planet is going to avoid runaway climate change.
And on the ground, coastal communities are resisting new offshore gas projects along the Great Ocean Road.
Victoria doesn't need any more gas: we have the solutions to source all our energy needs from wind, solar and energy storage.
Gas is the most expensive source of energy. By embracing 100% renewables and supporting households to get off gas, governments can protect vulnerable people from the rising cost of living.
We know that it is people power that drives political change and there has never been a more critical time for us to tell governments it’s time to switch off all support for gas and urgently take up renewables and energy efficiency measures as a priority.
If you support the vision to reach 100% Renewables and No More Gas, sign the petition today. It's the first step but every bit counts.
