Renewable energy and lower power bills. People says it’s an impossible mix. Renewable Newstead’s model for switching to 100 per cent, locally generated renewable energy suggests otherwise. We released our report “Small Town, Big Switch’ which summarises the hows, hurdles and solutions in Newstead on Sunday Sept 2. About 100 people attended. Thanks to the Victorian Government for giving us the wherewithal to carry out this investigation. Our brilliant community fired top class questions at us as usual. A copy of the report & other detailed documents will be loaded on this website tomorrow. More on next steps soon. Meantime, enjoy these pics.
