The Morrison Government plans to weaken our brightest renewable funds – the Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC) and Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) – to let them splash cash into fossil fuels

Investors won’t back gas – neither should Australian taxpayers.

Independent and Centre Alliance representatives in our Parliament are powerful voices for public policy in the public interest. They can do a great job in holding the Government accountable. 

Their voices and their votes will be critical in the next three months as we work to keep our brightest renewable energy funds clean – and stop the Coalition giving public money to their mates in gas!

We call on Independent MPs Helen Haines, Zali Steggall, Andrew Wilkie and Rebecca Sharkie (Centre Alliance), and crossbench Senators Jacqui Lambie, Rex Patrick and Stirling Griff (Centre Alliance) to use their voices and votes and stand up for the Clean Energy Finance Corporation by:

  • Keep our clean energy agencies clean – don’t change their remit to support fossil fuels.
  • Maintain their independence – don’t give the Minister powers to override investment decisions of the independent board
  • Retain the requirement to deliver a return on investment to Australians – investors won’t back gas, and neither should taxpayers.

Let’s encourage Independents in the House of Representatives to use their voices to speak up for the public interest, as they have on so many important issues.

And let’s encourage Independents in the Senate to use their votes to protect our clean energy funds, as they have in the past.

Please think AND vote independently- gas is not the long term answer and we have such a wonderful opportunity to build a world class renewable economy.

I have solar hot water and panels which I had installed when I retired by buying a good 2nd hand car rather than a brand new car. The $8000 difference paid for my solar water and panels.
If I can do it as a retiree living well on c $37, 000 per year so can Australia.
Regards and know that I’ll follow how you vote.

Please stop the Liberals from funding unsustainable and tax paying citizens call to STOP environment & wildlife wrecking policies. The experts and the evidence supports climate change & we want our politicians to acknowledge that they represent all Australians not just big business.
