Description

Rooftop solar is now a force to be reckoned with! With nearly two million solar rooftop installations in Australia, a sizeable proportion of the population has direct personal interest in policies that support renewable energy. That’s $8 billion dollars of investment if we’re talking hard figures, and Solar Citizens has stepped up to represent. Claire and her team work tirelessly to stand up for the rights of solar homeowners, making renewable energy a social, political and economic issue that business and politicians cannot ignore. Some have identified their existence and activities as a declaration of war with the traditional energy utility companies, which are pushing hard to protect their grip on the market by opposing pro-solar policy. Claire joined us at HotHouse to give an overview of the rooftop solar revolution, what it might mean for the future of renewable energy in Australia, and how you can get involved as a solar owner yourself.
