"ORGANISING FOR AFFORDABLE AND CLEAN ENERGY FOR ALL"
The Voices for Power Campaign is a community organising campaign that brings diverse cultural and religious leaders and communities together to build collective power and organise for Affordable and Renewable energy solutions for all. Over the last 3 years we've heard hundreds of stories from people's experiences.
Some of the stories we've heard ...
"Despite adjusting our energy usage behaviour at home, our energy bill still increased from its usual $600 amount to $850." - Tu Li (Marrickville, 2018)
"Because of language barriers I help many of my community members negotiate with their energy retailers. Some seek my support to help deal with debt collectors." - Sheikh Adid Arubai (Mount Druitt, 2019)
"I noticed how drastically our electricity bill went down as a result of switching to solar. This change means that I have huge savings to support my family’s basic needs. " - AniSon (Blacktown, 2018)
- "I live in a tiny room of high rise building. I can’t afford a fan because I’ve been out of work due to my disability. During the heatwave I had no choice but to just sweat in my clothes and keep changing” - Amada (Blacktown, 2020)
