poster-renewables-rallyPort Stephens residents show support for solar Port Stephens residents have gathered to throw their support for renewable energy, demanding more government support for the sector.

The ‘Solar Shindig’ at Tanilba Bay attracted about 30 people and follows similar events across the country.

The Abbott government has recently advised the Clean Energy Finance Corporation not to fund wind or household solar projects angering supporters of renewable energy.

Shindig organiser Les Pinney said there is a lot of support for green energy in the Hunter.

“About 13 per cent of households within the Port Stephens area actually have solar installed,” he said.

“Renewable are our future, sticking with coal is putting the whole future economy of the country at risk.”
