To: David Southwick, Liberal spokesperson for energy

Protect renewable energy jobs

Is David Southwick trying to kill renewable energy jobs? It certainly looks like it.

Despite wide support from the union movement, environmental groups, and the business sector, the Victorian Liberals have pledged to scrap the Victorian Renewable Energy Target if they are elected in November.

David Southwick and the Liberals must do better. Sign the petition to support renewable energy jobs.

Why is this important?

A renewable energy jobs boom is just starting to get underway across the state thanks to the Victorian Renewable Energy Target (VRET). The initiative is expected to create over 10,000 jobs, attract $9 billion worth of investment to our state, and helps us tackle climate change.

Meanwhile David Southwick, Liberal spokesperson for energy has:
⚫ Promised to scrap the Victorian Renewable Energy Target, which is already creating thousands of renewable energy jobs around the state
⚫ Voted against stronger climate laws for Victoria
⚫ Voted against a fairer price for electricity from rooftop solar

Sign the petition to call on David Southwick to protect renewable energy jobs.


Reasons for signing

  • Renewable energy is extremely important for our future.
