The Coronavirus response has shown that we can make big changes quickly. And unprecedented Government spending in the recovery provides us with a unique opportunity to build back better.

Jacinda Ardern’s Government has led the world in responding to Covid-19. Now we have the opportunity to lead the world with our economic recovery.

Over the coming months, the Government will decide how to spend another $ 20 billion of public money on the Covid-19 recovery.

Join our call on the Government to solarise New Zealand and power our homes, transport and businesses with clean solar energy.

By installing solar panels and batteries on half a million homes over the next ten years, we can really start to meet the challenge of the climate emergency, increase the resilience of our power grid, and give affordable power back to the people.

It’s an ambitious plan, but we can do it. We can power our homes, transport and economy with clean energy and end our reliance on dirty fossil fuels.
