It’s hard to believe another year has passed and we have our 2019 AGM coming up very soon. This year we have invited Dr Peter Cock, a former lecturer in Environmental Science at Monash University and founder of the Moora Moora Cooperative Community, to talk about ‘Living with Renewable Energy for 40 Years’.
Moora Moora was founded on Mt Toolebewong, in the hills just 20 minutes from Healesville, in the mid 1970’s, and fought actively not to connect to the electricity grid. They have used renewable energy over that period of time, and now also have a working internal Micro Grid linking some of their homes. Peter will talk about the Moora Moora experience and his personal experience with renewable energy, from a time when it was not very popular in Australian to now, when the whole of Australia is in transition towards a renewable energy future.
We have also invited Julian Guess from the Yarra Ranges Council to talk about the latest developments in the feasibility study re a possible Solar Farm for Healesville, with community participation and involvement. Julian will also screen a short promotional film made by Council to highlight the renewable energy developments Council has initiated around the Yarra Ranges.
If you are a member of Healesville CoRE and would like to attend, or would like to become a member, and serve on our Central Committee or on one of our Sub Committees please get in touch. We would love to hear from you.
We really need the active involvement of our community and welcome new members to engage in our very exciting project to transition Healesville to Net Zero carbon by 2027.
