Comments from Michelle Stark, Sustainability Officer, Alpine Shire Council
Council is expanding focus from reducing our corporate emissions to helping the community reduce theirs. This starts with energy efficiency improvements in the home. We are very happy to be included in this Sustainable Upper Ovens event, which is timely, as it coincides with the launch of our new Home Energy and Water Efficiency Kits and Council’s new sustainability website, both aimed at supporting the community to do what is within their control to reduce their energy bills and live more comfortably in their homes. Our Home Energy and Water Efficiency Kits will be available to borrow for free from our public libraries across the Shire and will help people assess energy and water use in their homes. We will be presenting these kits with a demonstration on how to use them at the event.
Council is also currently working with consultants on a Community Energy and EV Charging Prospectus and a Community Climate Action Plan Roadmap, both of which have received funding from the Victorian State Government’s 2022 Resilience and Recovery Grant Fund. These projects are a long-term commitment from Council, to support and empower the community to implement emissions reduction strategies and resilience improvement measures. We are excited to share details about these two very exciting projects at this event and to let our community know in what ways they can get involved through the numerous community engagement session we have planned as part of the Roadmap development.
