Let's power all of Victoria with 100% Renewable Energy!

With the federal government failing the country on the climate crisis, it's critical that states like Victoria show greater leadership.

Right now, a Parliamentary Inquiry is getting underway into transitioning Victoria to all the way to 100% Renewable Energy.

If you'd like to make your own detailed submission to the inquiry, you can find more details here on the website.
