It’s time to celebrate!

It has been an eventful year and Australia is embarking on journey — in no small part thanks to the tens of thousands of members of climate action groups who joined in the “Say Yes” movement.

While there’s been very disappointing moves at the state level affecting both wind and solar, as a nation, we have much to celebrate with the passing of the Clean Energy Future package.

Our community began saying “yes” six years ago when we decided to build our own wind farm  — the first in Australia to be owned by a community.

Now it is time to officially celebrate community power. We hope you will join us as we open Australia’s first community owned wind farm at a Launch Festival.

This family friendly event will feature local music, food stalls, wind farm tours, information booths and we are privileged to be hearing from David Karoly, one of Australia’s leading climate scientists.Hepburn Wind festival poster

More than 55 communities around the country have made contact wanting to find ways of building their own community energy projects. Come visit the closest wind farm to Melbourne, and see for yourself what happens when a community pulls together to achieve something big.

Bring your friends and family or organise a group to come along and enjoy a day out on Leonards Hill!

  1. I wonder if the anti-wind Hepburn Springs Backsmith Senator Madigan will be there? Perhaps he might learn a thing or two about renewable energy….

    1. Given Madigan didn’t bother finding out the facts before accusing Simon of working for vested interests and being paid accordingly, do you really think he is interested in the facts?

      Seems Senator Madigan doesn’t want to be troubled by is inconvenient details that undermine his beliefs.
