Ready-to-go 100 per cent green community power at a solar farm will be over 30 per cent more efficient compared to rooftop solar.
Living for 30 years in the Byron Shire, paying taxes and rates, but as a non-Australian, I have no voting rights here. That does not stop me from political interest and actions. Bruce Clarke visited on Byron Eco Park, and he is supportive of the Tyagarah Green Energy (TGE) concept. The presentation of Bruce and his team at the Community Centre was inspiring.
First of all TGE needs government support and money with potential to grow from <5MW on Byron Eco Park to over 60MW on neighbouring farms, and implementing rooftop solar. Byron Council and TGE are working together with Essential Energy on a pilot demonstration project.
This letter is written together with my 20-year-old daughter, a first time voter. She respects my lifetime experience, as do other people who know me. She will vote for Bruce and his team. Please join us for the benefit of residents and future generations. Like other voters I am convinced that Bruce Clarke is our best candidate for mayor.
