1. Check whether your energy retailer is one of the Big Three - Origin, AGL and EnergyAustralia.
Origin want to slash the RET target in half, Energy Australia also wants to wind back our RET and AGL want to reduce the RET to protect their investments in their dirty brown coal power-station ‘Loy Yang A’.
2. Check out the energy retailer alternatives in your state
Queensland: Diamond Energy
Unfortunately there are no alternative energy providers in Western Australia, Tasmania, Northern Territory and the ACT. However, you can still send a message to the Big Three and the Liberal Government by sending them an email below pledging to change your energy retailer as soon as green energy providers become available in your area.
3. Let your Big Three retailer and Liberal Minister for the Environment Greg Hunt, and Minister for Industry Ian MacFarlane know that you’re divesting until the Big Three invest!
Remember to let them know your name, where you live and why you care about renewable energy. Make sure you let your Big Three retailer know that you are divesting, and encouraging others to do the same, because they are refusing to invest in clean energy projects and threatening our RET. The RET is encouraging billions in investments, building a clean energy industry for the future and creating tens of thousands of jobs - that's why we want to keep the RET we've got of 41,000 GWh.
