South Australians back renewable transition

Over 60 per cent of South Australians support a 100 percent transition to renewable energy by 2030, according to new data released by The Australia Institute.

A majority of voters for all parties listed, including the Coalition and One Nation, support the policy.

“Renewable energy is extraordinarily popular in South Australia,” said Noah Schultz-Byard, The Australia Institute’s SA projects manager.

“The majority support for 100% renewable energy in SA cuts across party lines, with Coalition, Labor, Greens and One Nation voters all backing the policy.”

The release of the data comes as the South Australian Energy Minister claimed that the state is on target to meet its renewable energy target of 75% by 2025.
