Join us in Budget week to take the campaign direct to the State government.

Victoria's Hazelwood power station is the dirtiest coal fired power station in Australia and one of the most polluting in the developed world. Hazelwood is so old and inefficient it produces almost 15% of Victoria's carbon pollution and uses an enormous amount of water. It is outdated technology, a polluting dinosaur of the industrial age.
Together we can replace Hazelwood with clean energy alternatives – such as investments in energy efficiency and renewable energy like solar and wind.
