Stuff we talked about in this episode:
We talked about alternative energy models, including community power hubs. And guess what? Sustainability Victoria recently funded the Latrobe Valley Community Power Hub, which will be hosted by the Gippsland Climate Change Network. The Hub will be the first locally-based and community owned renewable energy project of its kind in Gippsland.
