Stamps of approval for renewable energy.

Renewable energy production has been honoured in a stamp issue recently released by Australia Post. The special issue of stamps celebrates Australia's renewable energy production including energy sources such as sun (solar), wind and water (hydro).

Australia Post Group Manager Philatelic, Amber McDougall, says, "It is important that our nation develops a renewable energy capability, for our benefit and for future generations."

"Solar energy is the least polluting energy source available and it is estimated that enough sunlight hits the earth every hour to supply the world with sufficient energy for a year," she added.

Renewable Energy first-day covers, stamp pack and maxi-cards are available at Australia Post outlets. They can also be bought by mail order on 1800 331 794.
