Tell the Andrews Government to set a strong VRET for Victoria - click here to make a submission now!
The Government has agreed to set a Victorian Renewable Energy Target, but they still haven’t said how high the target will be. There’s a risk the Government will set a low target like 20% by 2020, which is nowhere near good enough.
The Government are calling for public submissions to determine what the VRET will be. You can help put pressure on them by making a short submission now.
Key points (you may want to include these in your submission):
The ACT has a Renewable Energy Target of 100% by 2025, and is on track to achieve it.
The ACT’s strong RET has already helped renewable energy projects get built, including the Ararat wind farm here in Victoria.
20% by 2020 is nowhere near good enough. That’s less than Victoria’s fair share of the national RET, which was recently slashed by the Coalition and Federal Labor.
The Greens policy is to get to 100% renewable energy as soon as possible. We know this is achievable with the technology available to us today. We should be aiming for minimum 80% by 2025.
