The Hepburn Shire Council is hosting a community workshop on Saturday 14th October, at Victoria Park in Daylesford, from 9.30 am to 4.30 pm.
Everyone is invited to attend but numbers are limited, so click below to register before 5:00pm Tuesday 10 October 2017.
The Carbon Free Action Workshop builds on the themes which emerged from the Carbon Free Community Conversations held in June. The workshop will bring together interested community members from across the shire with guest speakers who have relevant knowledge and experience, to help develop an action plan/roadmap to turn ideas into reality. The workshop will tap into the momentum demonstrated for the shire to become carbon neutral.
The themes covered will include:
> Generating community power at community and individual level - Learn from the Renewable Newstead and Hepburn Wind experience
> Bulk purchase of solar systems - Learn more about the proposed Hepburn Bulk Buy opportunity
> Learn about what it takes to conduct a successful household/business energy savings program
> Waste to Energy opportunities in the Hepburn Shire
> Learn More about the Ballarat Community Power Hub funded by the Victorian Government
Taryn Lane from Hepburn Wind will facilitate a comprehensive “how to” community power workshop with the aims of:
> Building community knowledge about community energy and the steps involved
> Familiarise the community with the most viable community energy business models in Australia.
> Identifying the skills and resources needed.
> Develop a plan for the next steps toward making community power projects a reality.
