The future is in renewables

Right across the country, households, businesses and local communities are experiencing the benefits of making the switch to renewable energy. More than a million households have made the switch to solar power and the private sector is investing billions of dollars in new wind farm development.

Clean energy creates installation, assembly and maintenance jobs in regional areas, offsets energy price rises, gives farmers income without damaging the land, provides returns to investors and creates a new sector which diversifies the economy and keeps the money right here in Australia.
