In NSW, our biggest contribution to climate change is how we power our lives and communities. Today 79% of our power comes from coal. But we can change that. Repower is a people-powered campaign to break our addiction to coal and gas and repower our lived with clean energy. Join us.

Our solutions

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:

  1. Commit to sourcing all our electricity from clean, renewable sources by 2030.
  2. Create incentives that encourage investment in energy storage, including batteries, pumped-hydro and solar thermal storage to increase grid reliability.
  3. Rule out new coal mines and gas fields in NSW.

To make the transition fair, the NSW Government must:

  1. Help workers and communities transition as coal-fired power stations and coal mines close.
  2. Protect community health by cleaning up air pollution from coal-fired power stations.
