Transition Gawler is establishing an energy group
Transition Gawler is establishing an energy group, that will look at clean energy solutions specially for Gawler and regions. Transition Gawler is interested in investigating the right mix of energy sources for Gawler. It might be energy efficiency help, community owned solar power schemes, wind turbines or maybe even a big project for baseload power such as concentrated solar thermal who knows! If you are interested in getting involved, contact Transition Gawler.
Right now Transition Gawler is already working with CORENA (Citizen’s Own Renewable Energy Network Australia) to fund solar and energy efficiency projects in Gawler the first of which is at Gawler Community House.
CORENA provides a practical and immediate way for ‘the people’ to collectively fund new renewable energy installations. CORENA finds worthy projects and organisations then ‘crowd source’ the funding. Transition Gawler looks forward to working with CORENA to bring more great projects to Gawler.
A rapid transition away from polluting fossil fuels such as coal, oil and gas must occur in the next decade to avoid catastrophic climate change.
We will be meeting soon to plan an Energy info night to occur the week of ‘Earth Hour’. So if you are interested please contact us.
Clean renewable energy is the best way forward to meet the energy use of our community.
