Big Solar Campaign Launch and Picnic

Come along to Yarra Climate Action Now’s launch of the national Big Solar Campaign.

Saturday 3 March, 1-3pm 


North Fitzroy Primary School – Corner of Fergie St and Alfred Cres, North Fitzroy. Just across the road from Edinburgh Gardens.


We will be having a delicious picnic, a short presentation on how baseload solar power works (including a spectacular scale model of an actual solar thermal power plant) and then we will be taking a photo to show that the people of inner Melbourne support building big solar (photo taken at 1.45pm)!


Australia is the best country in the world for large-scale solar power.

Also, baseload solar thermal is the game-changing renewable energy technology that can run reliably 24 hours a day, day and night.

Big solar is a solution to climate change while also helping create jobs and development in rural communities.

It just makes sense. Join the campaign for big solar!

RSVP (so we know how much food to bring) at:

PS – If you have tools, hard hats, high-visibility vests or any other builder get-up, please bring it along for the photo to be taken at 1.45pm.

The solar thermal model will be on display at the picnic
