Solar Power - Take Action!

  Tax-the-sunPETITION-Link
 
Dear BREAZE members and supporters,
 
On the 23rd of October 2013, the headline in the Australian read “solar-powered households face higher fees to use grid.”  (Full story here - but need a subsription to The Australian.)
 
This article discussed how new recommendations to hit every solar home may soon go to our state and federal governments.
 
The Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) are recommending taxing the sun
 
 Tax-on-the-sun
For years now big power companies have been trying to blame renewables for the increases in energy costs. But we all know that rising electricity bills is because of wasteful over-spending on poles and wires. Solar and wind are in fact reducing the wholesale price of power. (Reference here.)
 
Solar Citizens are planning on fighting any tax on the sun, at every level and in every state - wherever a new tax may arise. But we need your help. 
 
We have a goal to get at least 25,000 signatures to show how important this issue to the community. Can you add your name today - and share this with your friends?
 
There’s a competition for individuals, community groups (that's us) and solar companies to go in to a draw to win an exciting solar prize. You can see who’s leading the competition by checking out the group leaderboard here.
 
Solar Citizens intends to present the petition to our Federal and State Energy Ministers in December to show the force of the sun in our communities. In just under 2 hours, over 1,600 concerned solar owners and lovers had already signed the petition against the sun tax.
 
 
Signed,
 
The VOLUNTEER Team at BREAZE
