Thanks Echo for all the good press on Byron’s vision for being the first shire powered by renewable energy and Mullumbimby the first town.
With the proposed Northern Rivers Energy Company selling only clean renewable energy, of which there is an abundance in Australia, no shortage with our nationwide grid.
COREM (Community Organisation Renewable Energy Mullumbimby) is now functioning and I believe being funded.
The new Byron Eco Park is showing the latest in solar panels, inverters, three-phase power systems running a honey factory and salt water batteries with no toxic materials.
The Eco Park is having a Symposium this Saturday, March 21, from 2 till 7 pm with Dr Tim Flannery heading a round table panel discussion on how we transition to a clean energy economy.
There will be an all-electric car and electric bikes, scooters and a utility vehicle to test drive. Byron New Energy, Transition Towns, Beyond Zero Emissions and solar suppliers will be available for answering questions and providing information on the day.
This will be at the new Byron Eco Park off Grays Lane next to the Tyagarah airfield.
Food and drink will be available and tickets can be obtained online at www.byronsolarrevolution.com or at the door. No one turned away on the day, ask about our special locals plan. See you there.
Noah Yamore, Mullumbimby, for Byron New Energy
