Our fight for homegrown energy

We can’t keep powering our lives with polluting fuels from last century that keep damaging our climate, our neighbourhoods, and our health. The fossil fuel industry is greedily lining its pockets and five major power companies in New Zealand profit from burning coal. Meanwhile, our communities suffer from stronger floods, droughts, polluted air, blackouts and soaring energy bills (in the last 30 years households power prices rose by 79%). Vulnerable communities are at the forefront of these devastating impacts.

Join our call on Hon Dr Megan Woods Minister for Energy and Resources to end our energy injustice and support a fast and just transition by passing legislation to:

  • Provide zero-interest loans for household solar and grant funding for community energy schemes and papakāinga energy schemes
  • Guarantee the installation of solar on all new community housing projects and retrofit social housing with solar panels and batteries
  • Roll out an ambitious programme to insulate Aotearoa’s 600,000 under-insulated homes to improve energy efficiency
  • Separate the Gentailers so that these companies either generate electricity or retail electricity, but not both

We need to draw a line in the sand and speak up against our broken energy system and put an end to energy injustice. We can push our politicians to invest in affordable clean energy and introduce policies that will strengthen energy sovereignty. Will you join our fight for climate justice and start advocating for solutions?

We have the technology available to power our lives without killing our planet and harming our communities. Getting to 100% renewable energy electricity is 100% doableWe can have homegrown and locally-produced energy and stop being reliant on the fossil fuel industry.

The more we invest in renewables the cheaper they become - soon renewable electricity will be cheaper than fossil fuels for households and businesses. Renewable energy projects create more investment across the economy. More community-controlled renewable energy will give people greater access to and ownership over their local energy systems and strengthen community ties.
