COMMUNITY decarbonisation organisation Repower Mornington Peninsula held a lunch on Sunday 23 July to celebrate its achievements over the past couple of years.
Members of the core committee and the postcode-based satellite groups from across the peninsula met to share their plans and activities and communication strategies for spreading the word on how to reduce emissions and transition to a more energy efficient future.
Attendees included representatives from Flinders, Mount Martha, Red Hill, Main Ridge, Balnarring, Rosebud, Rye, Mount Eliza, Shoreham, Sorrento, and Mornington.
Repower committee member Belinda Rodman said that shortly after the meeting Repower was notified that the group had been shortlisted in the education category of the Keep Australia Beautiful Tidy Towns and Cities awards.
Repower is made up of engaged residents who believe in taking responsibility towards solving the global warming climate crisis by encouraging community decarbonisation through 100 per cent use of renewable energy.
Rodman said “community decarbonisation” would be achieved through reducing emissions via the electrification of the community with renewable energy.
