Why Support Repower Byron Shire?
- Around 50% of NSW's climate pollution comes from electricity generation and Australians are the biggest carbon emitters per capita. However, in just a few small steps we can feel good about our climate action achievements.
- Millions of dollars leaves the Northern Rivers when we pay our power bills. Let's cycle that money in our economy by choosing local renewable energy.
- The way Governments are behaving you could believe climate change won't significantly impact people, our environment and own livelihoods. However, we are at a critical stage where we must act. Positive action now will protect our future.
- We can do it! Turn the toxic anti-renewable narrative on it's head. Let's lead by example.
- Actually it is not that difficult, and you can save money. We are here to support your transition.
- FLICK FOSSIL FUELS . If we do not want CSG, Adani and other new coal projects "think global - act local". Action starts in our home and sphere of influence.
