Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Have your Perfect Say

We live in a community where there is nowhere to live and the whole world is watching what we do next, wondering if we will do what their superstar tourist destinations did and regulate the housing market

Local community-owned renewable energy group COREM says it’s feeling buoyed and sunny, ‘about the amazing potential of solar gardens for the Northern Rivers’.

President Ella Rose Goninan told The Echo, ‘COREM has just returned from the final day of the national Social Access Solar Garden research and design project funded by ARENA (Australian Renewable Energy Agency), held at UTS Sydney on Friday November 9, where they presented findings from their solar-garden modelling and heard the latest developments from other organisations.’ 


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
