“I’m for a sun-powered Queensland. I want everyone, everywhere to be able to power their lives with clean energy."

Join the Sun-Powered Queensland campaign to call on the Queensland Government to:

  • Champion large-scale clean energy projects across our state
  • Make our renewable energy target law
  • Phase out coal and gas-fired power
  • Help people who work in affected industries and their communities prepare for jobs for the future

Are you in?

We’re called the sunshine state with good reason.

We have big open skies, not too many clouds and a big ball of energy that just shows up in the sky each day. In just six hours, it gives the world’s deserts more energy than all humans use in a year.

Powering our lives with energy from the sun and wind just makes sense. It doesn’t harm our climate, fuel coral bleaching or pollute our air and water. It’s affordable and good for our communities. It’ll create lots of good jobs in new industries with a big future. In fact, it already is.

But in Queensland right now, the Palaszczuk government doesn’t seem to get it. Our elected representatives are backing Adani’s giant polluting coal mine and dithering on clean energy. They're putting our climate, communities and reef at risk.

It’s an election year and Premier Palaszczuk needs to hear, loud and clear, we Queenslanders want clean energy, not coal.

It is about time that we look at the future of power and continue the cycle that humans have broken. Renewable energies are a viable option,

Qld should use hot salt storage solar generating plants.

Our off grid solar electricity system (without backup generator) has not only paid for itself (in comparison to the capital cost and ongoing fees that we would have needed to connect to the grid 200 metres away), but also is far more reliable than the grid electricity supplied to our semi-rural neighbours at the end of a long transmission line. We live with all mod cons, but when we were more frugal and lived in a hut as a weekender we got by with a $200 system that gave us light at night and a small TV. It is beyond me how any fossil fuel company can invent such a huge lie about coal fired electricity being necessary for the third world, when it is several hundred times more expensive to provide the basics this way.
