‘Retrofitting the Region’ Comfy Homes Project
Deanna has started working on developing a program that will assist householders, community groups, tradespeople and businesses with information and access to home energy assessments and retrofitting – getting those bills down and homes more comfy for summer and winter. If you’ve had an assessment done and are looking for further information and advice give Deanna a call. Let us know if your organisation is able to help with information distribution. If you’re a tradie we’d also like to hear from you. Deanna works at MASG Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Ring 5470 6978 or email email@example.com

Replace Hazelwood Rally Sunday October 10th return bus being organised..Help send a message that Australia’s dirtiest power station should be replaced with renewable energy by 2012. Last year a bus load of people from this shire went to the day of action at Hazelwood. Following on from that effort the Brumby state government has said it is considering replacing ¼ of Hazelwood (shutting down 2 turbines) with a gas fired power station. Send a message that we need to replace all of Hazelwood with renewable energy by turning up on Sunday October 10th with a mirror to form our own solar thermal power station. Kid’s entertainment and music will be part of this community event. MASG will help organise a bus again to travel down and back on the Sunday so register early to book a place with Dean on 54706978 or firstname.lastname@example.org Click here for more information on the event.
