Take Action

Since 2011 the Port Augusta community has been fighting for a just transition to solar thermal in Port Augusta creating new clean jobs and delivering solar power day and night.

Sign the Petition

I support replacing Port Augusta's coal  generators with large-scale solar thermal and wind energy plants, not gas.  We can provide the equivalent 24-hour base-load electricity from clean, renewable sources and:

  • Create 1800 jobs
  • Save millions of tonnes of carbon emissions annually
  • Lead the switch to a renewable energy economy
  • Eliminate the serious health impacts of coal and gas
  • Ensure more stable electricity prices for South Australians
