Demand a fair payment for solar electricity

We want to see Ireland unlock its solar energy potential.


Right now anyone who produces solar energy and doesn't use it all immediately, must give it away for free. Sign this petition to Minister Naughten demanding the guarantee of a fair payment for solar electricity, so people can get paid for the excess energy they generate with panels on the roof of their homes, farm buildings, schools, clubs and community halls, and from the electricity generated in solar farms.

Tell the Oireachtas Committee to #BackTheBill to Ban Fracking

#BacktheBill to ban fracking in Ireland

The Oireachtas is asking you for your thoughts on fracking and unconventional extraction of fossil fuels.

In October, they unanimously agreed to the principle of introducing legislation that would ban all fracking activities in Ireland.  

Now they want to know what the public thinks on the matter.

There are lots of reasons why fracking is bad news.

And mounting global and national peer reviewed and scientific evidence that taking oil and gas out of the ground poses a significant threat to Climate Change, Public Health, Water Quality, and the Natural Environment

The proposed bill would make it illegal to take oil and gas out of the ground from areas in Ireland where it would need to be fracked, such as the shale deposits across Sligo, Leitrim, Roscommon, Donegal, Cavan, Monaghan, Clare, Limerick, Cork and Kerry.

Please help us demonstrate that the people of Ireland support a legal ban on fracking activities by signing up here.
