SEA acknowledges the important financial support provided by each and every SEA Member, and the additional support many also contribute through time and knowledge to assist in policy development and advocacy work.

‘As the commercial interests of both Kirsten and Ray ably demonstrate, any business that supports sustainable energy deployment throughout the Australian economy can strengthen the work of SEA through membership.'
