UPDATE: Tiki Taane joined us to deliver 45,000 paper suns and the petition thus far to the Electricity Authority in Wellington -- all the while serenading them with his brand new song, Shine Your Love. Each sun carried the name of someone who signed our Stop the Solar Tax petition.

The world is in a climate crisis and to survive, we have to adopt clean renewable energy as soon as possible.

Solar power is one of the fastest growing clean energy sources in the world - but our ability to use it in New Zealand is under threat.

Big energy companies see solar as a threat to their profits and their control of your power. Right now they’re moving to cut it off.

Their first move is the new solar tax in Hawke’s Bay which penalises people who have solar panels.

We must push back before that spreads nationwide and tell the Electricity Authority to Say No to the Solar Tax.

Sign and share the petition now!

The New Zealand Electricity Authority must take responsibility for protecting solar power and regulate to prohibit electricity providers from penalising solar users, financially or otherwise.
