Byron wants a solar revolution

The push for renewable energy in Byron shire took another inspiring leap at the Byron Solar Revolution symposium on Saturday. And why wouldn’t it? In a solar future, as Professor Tim Flannery told locals, Byron could be in front as the first place on the east coast to greet the sun.

    The cart for solar needs pushing in the place when the sun shines first on the coast of Australia.
    We need a pole and a wire as we push a push poll to see what the sun’s power will shine on.
    The sun beams down on the coast while we stop loading the coal into the coal loader and the bailer.
    So take your beaming face to the Byron Solar Revolution symposium on Saturday and swtch the solar on.
    Enthusiasm is what we want for couples to stand for a non-polluting future for their daughters and sons.

    Go Byron. I’m glad I have my 12 solar panels on my house. Wanted to do it for years. I totally support the solar industry and hopefully we can make the Govt support us eventually.

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
