Sign The Pledge – Put AGL On Notice!

Click Here to Sign this Pledge and say NO to AGL’s dirty Gas Plan NOW

AGL is still making plans to build a gas import terminal in beautiful Westernport Bay. AGL has admitted that by processing LNG and building their outdated gas pipeline, they would routinely destroy Westernport’s precious wetlands and wildlife.

AGL’s imported gas would produce 30% more carbon than local gas. 

It’s a classic case of profit over people and planet.

That’s why this community says NO!
Save Westernport and Environment Victoria are working with local groups to make sure our voice of opposition is heard.
Take Action, SIGN NOW
We deserve the sustainable energy forms and fair prices that Government and industry have been promising for decades now!

Support the fight to protect Westernport Bay from AGL’s corporate exploitation and unnecessary industry. Now is the time to ramp up pressure and hold AGL accountable for the damage their plans will cause to these precious ecosystems.

As an AGL customer or potential customer, AGL cares about what you say and do. IF YOU DON’T SUPPORT THEIR PLANS, THEN DON’T SUPPORT AGL!
You can use your voice to hit them where it hurts by signing the Pledge NOW 

Send a message to AGL to register your concern as a customer or potential customer; if they want your business, they need to dump their dirty gas project.

On behalf of nine groups including Save Westernport, Phillip Island Conservation Society (PICS), Westernport and Peninsula Protection Council (WPPC), Friends of French Island (FOFI) and Environment Victoria, this open letter was delivered to AGL board members and shareholders at the 2019 AGL annual general meeting.

The joint letter stated that community opposition to this project continues to grow, and demands AGL to DUMP their dirty gas plan.

Now we need to keep the pressure up, and as a customer or potential customer, you can influence what AGL does.

Let’s seize this moment and let AGL know it’s not just shareholders and the local community around Westernport Bay who want AGL to do better on climate – customers and potential customers across Victoria do too.

You can help protect our climate and our precious marine sanctuary by permanently boycotting AGL if they go ahead with this dirty plan.

Put AGL on notice by signing this pledge NOW 

We can make this action even more powerful if we get more people on board. Can you help by sharing this message with five or more  friends? Please follow this link and share it.

Help deliver the No AGL postcard petitions to Brett Redman

AGL CEO Brett Redman is in Melbourne on 12 June to speak at the Energy Week Conference so Environment Victoria and Save Westernport have taken the opportunity to ask him to meet us and receive our petition of approximately 15,000 signatures. Brett says one of his top three strategic goals for this year is social licence. He’s busy talking about it all around the country so get on the bus with us to let him know that he absolutely has not got social licence for this damaging proposal. Make sure he gets a strong message that Westernport communities remain defiant and strong in our opposition.

It’s just a few hours of your day and you might be that one extra person that makes all the difference. Don’t think one voice doesn’t count. The only way to change things is to turn up. (besides we’ll have a good time on the bus to and from Melbourne meeting each other and sharing experiences and knowledge.)

Look forward to seeing you.

Stop AGL Petition

Act NOW to stop AGL from installing a floating gas terminal in Westernport. 

Please sign our petition urging the Minister for Planning, Richard Wynne to deny AGL’s application or at the very least, require them to undergo a full environmental effects statement.

You can read the petition text below the signature area.  There is also a custom message to the minister that will be sent automatically when you sign, and you can customise what it says to make it more of a personal message.  

Please make sure you check your email after signing the petition to confirm your address. This adds extra credibility to our petition by allowing us to tell people that those who signed were “real” and not made-up email addresses.   Thank you so much!

Petition Text

AGL is currently applying to the Victorian Department of Planning to install a floating gas import terminal at Crib Point, Westernport Bay with connecting 60km pipeline to Pakenham.

The proposal is senseless on every level:

  1. AGL will be importing gas while globally Australia and Qatar are the world’s biggest gas exporters. Australia will be at the mercy of international LNG prices.
  2. The 300m gas factory (floating storage and regasification unit – FSRU) will be permanently moored in a critical wetland ecosystem and UNESCO designated biosphere reserve
  3. There are many environmental concerns about the regasification process (e.g. sucking up 450 million litres of organism rich seawater per day and spewing it out “dead”, chlorinated and 7°C colder)
  4. The 60km pipeline will cut a 30m swathe through reserves of native vegetation and listed wetland areas as well as farms and productive agricultural land.

AGL’s initial justification for this profit-making scheme was to ensure gas security and to put “downward pressure on prices”. Now they acknowledge that they cannot assure the latter due to intense demand for gas worldwide and we are not facing a gas shortage as previously thought.

As if that wasn’t enough, the gas is not for Victorians: “AGL is relying on the potential for the project to secure long-term economic supplies of gas to new gas power station projects in South Australia and NSW.” Jay Gleeson, AGL Community Relations Manager, 08 August 2018.
