Renewable Energy is here. Families are making the switch to save money on their power bills, businesses are decreasing their carbon footprint and farmers are benefiting from sustainable streams of income by leasing their land to wind and solar farms.
However, the poles and wires that carry our power to where it needs to go are largely centred around ageing coal-fired power stations, not the Renewable Energy Zones that will be our energy centres of the future.
RE-Alliance are actively advocating for better outcomes for regional communities impacted by renewable energy transmission lines. We push for more comprehensive community engagement and annual payments for landholders. Our recommendations to industry and government can be found in our report Building Trust for Transmission.
We are a signatory to a joint statement from national climate and environmental organisations calling on our governments to progress the transmission lines we need to complete our energy transformation and protect our local communities, species and environments from the threat of climate change.
