Some of you may be aware that BSFG has had a small working group investigating the possibility of a Community Owned Renewable Energy project for Benalla. The working group’s aim is to have Benalla become a zero net energy town which no longer relies on non-renewable energy. This would take a number of years to achieve and would certainly require council and community support.
The working group will be making a presentation to the council on Wednesday evening about this goal and will be seeking council support to work towards our ‘vision’ of a 100% renewable Benalla.
It would be good if some BSFG members were also there to listen to the presentation and show councillors that we are a significant group in the community.
Wednesday’s council meeting is a public meeting and we are scheduled to make our presentation at 6pm in the Council Meeting Room/Council Chambers in Mair Street. Opposite the information centre.
I hope to see some of you there.
