Alcoa must transition to renewable energy

This petition had 166 supporters


Since 1961 Alcoa has been operating a coal mine just inland from Anglesea on Victoria’s Surf Coast. The mine and attached power station provides energy for the Point Henry smelter, which produces aluminium for local use and export.

Under the original 1961 lease conditions, Alcoa has an automatic option to mine the site for another 50 years, and the Victorian government has just extended this lease.

Both the state government and the company have failed the Victorian community by locking in decades of continued reliance on dirty coal.
