Why change our energy use?

Climate change affects not just our environment, but local communities.

In Australia, the main source of carbon emissions is energy production.

We can reduce these carbon emissions by saving electricity and supporting clean energy. 

Clean energy comes from renewable energy sources like the sun, wind and water.
