RePower Alice Springs Update

The next RePower Alice Springs coordination group meeting is on Monday 4th December - 5pm at ALEC. 

We will be holding an end of year get together after the meeting on Monday 4 December from 6.30pm at the Gapview Hotel, so come along, celebrate our successes and discuss ideas for next year.

A planning session for developing community power initiative/s was held on Saturday 4 November.  It was a very successful day with 17 people attending, and we are now preparing to develop our first community power project.

Thank you to the Climate Action Network Australia (http://www.cana.net.au/) for the grant which helped make this happen, a big thank you to Tom Nockholds from the Community Power Agency http://cpagency.org.au/ who was our facilitator for the day, and thank you to the Alice Springs Town Council who supported us through the provision of the Andy McNeil room for the day for free.

RePower also held a meeting with Minister McCarthy to continue advocating for 100% solar, provide an update as to Repower’s progress and raise the issue of street voltages and the impact on solar.
