A visit to Renewable Newstead
September 03, 2018 Robert McLean
The small central Victorian town of Newstead has really "lifted the bar" and in fact is doing all the heavy lifting for small towns eager to travel down the renewablle energy path. The committee behind the idea is now just a few years into its project and yesterday launched the brochure "Small town, big switch" to the appluase of about 100 people at the town's community centre. The group, "Renewable Newstead" anticipates switching to 100 percent, locally generated renewable energy in a commercially viable and socially acceptable way.
