Local Actions Have Global Consequences
The Benalla Sustainable Future Group was established in 2010 by Benalla & District residents concerned about environmental sustainability and the lack of action on climate change both locally & nationally. By coming together we can work towards a more sustainable future & a cleaner planet.
Renewable Energy Benalla's Efficiency Group is working to achieve a reduction in power use in Benalla through efficiency measures continues, with the second of four 'Wipe out Electricity and Gas Bills' workshops at the Benalla Golf Club on June 26 covering lighting, draftproofing and insulation. The opportunity for residents and businesses to join the REB/ Mondo Power battery ready solar bulk buy project remains open for expressions of interest until July 31 - check out Mondo Power's 'Benalla Community Energy Project' webpage for more information. REB is also engaging as a community networker in finding out and sharing information about utility scale proposals such as the Lightsource BP Urbis proposed solar installation at Winton.
