Climate change is happening now – our forests, wildlife and communities are already feeling its effects. We have the technologies and abundant resources to break free from polluting energy sources now and to power our lives using the sun and the wind. Together, we can and must #RepowerNSW.
Let's put an end to our dirty energy system
In NSW, less than 7% of our electricity comes from the sun and wind. Meanwhile, pollution from our five old, dirty coal-fired power stations in rising. It’s not just our climate that is suffering. People's health and our environment are also paying the price of our addiction to coal and gas. We must close coal-fired power stations in NSW by 2030 and usher in a wave of clean energy investment to power our future. Join us in our campaign to #RepowerNSW with clean energy so nature and our communities can continue to thrive.
Help drive the change we need
Join thousands of Australians who are calling for a brighter future powered by clean energy. Let’s overcome the big polluting lobbyists and the politicians who do their bidding, and usher in a wave of clean energy investment across Australia. Please sign the petition to #RepowerNSW, and ask your friends and family to get on board, because we are strongest when we work together.

Another world is not only possible, it’s already knocking on our door. To do our fair share to tackle climate change and Repower our energy system we have five important solutions. To move NSW to a clean, reliable, affordable energy system, the NSW Government must:
- Commit to sourcing all our electricity from clean, renewable sources by 2030.
- Create incentives that encourage investment in energy storage, including batteries, pumped-hydro and solar thermal storage to increase grid reliability.
- Rule out new coal mines and gas fields in NSW.
To make the transition fair, the NSW Government must:
- Help workers and communities transition as coal-fired power stations and coal mines close.
- Protect community health by cleaning up air pollution from coal-fired power stations.
