Defend Renewables: Yes 2 Renewables Info Night (Melb)

WANT TO SECURE VICTORIA's RENEWABLE ENERGY LEADERSHIP?... JOIN US ON TUES SEPT 20 TO FIND OUT HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED: 

It has been a little over two months since the Daniel Andrews government committed to ambitious and achievable Victorian Renewable Energy Targets. Yet the celebration of the VRET outcome has been short-lived as fossil fuel interests are mounting an attack on the proposal.

A coordinated campaign from fossil fuel lobbyists and boosters in the media has blamed renewable energy for recent power price spikes in South Australia, national leader in renewable energy. The climate-denying think tank, the Institute of Public Affairs, have come out against the VRET. And so has The Australian, publishing a front-page article attacking the policy.

Fossil fuel interests will do anything to stop our transition to 100% renewables. They're prepared to sacrifice jobs, investment in communities, and our climate to protect their own interests.
