Sun Powered Queensland


Rooftop by rooftop, communities across Queensland are nudging our sunshine state towards a sun-powered future. In fact, Queenslanders are world leaders at harvesting sunshine!

But too many people don’t have access to clean energy. They are being left behind with dirty old energy that’s damaging our climate and harming our communities. 

We know we need to cut pollution and shift to clean energy, fast. To make this happen – and enable everyone, everywhere, to power their lives with clean energy – our government must step up and lead. 

Right now, the Palaszczuk government is developing a plan to see 50% of Queensland’s power needs met by clean energy sources – like wind and solar power – by 2030. 

So we’re asking individuals, companies and organisations to sign pledge to make sure this plan is a stepping stone to 100% renewables and achieves real climate action by retiring Queensland’s dirty power plants – there’s no other way! Other policy asks are here – SPQ Policy Asks.

Who else has pledged?

With the end of fossil fuels upon us, and the gradual closure of coal plants around the country, it is critical that the Queensland Government gives communities and workers sufficient notice to transition to other industries, whilst keeping fossil fuels safely in the ground.

The dirty fuel era is over. It’s time to shift to clean energy and help people transition to jobs that are good for their health, their families and communities, and the world we live in.

Join the Sun-Powered Queensland campaign which is calling on the Queensland Government to:

  • Make our renewable energy target law 
  • Phase out coal and gas-fired power 
  • Help people who work in affected industries and their communities prepare for jobs for the future 
  • Champion large-scale clean energy projects across our state.
