MP Helen Haines, who attended the meeting, updated the Benalla community about introducing a new bill, the Local Power Plan, to Parliament House that week. The Local Power Blan is a blue print for everyday Australians to benefit from the coming renewable energy boom in their local area. Helen's passion for renewable energy is contagious. “In the 21st century we can build a new generation of prosperity by catching the suns rays and surfing the prevailing winds.”
Lastly Jenny O’Connor, the Mayor of Indigo Shire, addressed the gathering with a motivating speech about her commitment to implementing strategies to create a greener future.
