In a most informative session, John described Yackandandah’s progress in working towards going off the grid and Renewable Energy Benalla’s vision of Benalla becoming a net zero energy town by 2028. He advised not to buy solar panels from companies who cold call providing offers over the phone, but to shop locally, and told us about workshops organised by REB aimed at achieving a reduction in power use in Benalla through efficiency measures. The workshops ‘Wipe out Electricity and Gas Bills’ are being held at the Benalla Golf Club on Tuesday May 22, June 26, July 24 & August 21 from 7 to 9pm.
At our meeting on the 20th June, Nick Gadd, from the Law Reform Commission, will present on two areas –Disputes with Neighbours (with a focus on trees) and Funeral/Burial Instructions. Nick has asked us to let our members know that he will not be able to provide specific legal advice to anyone on particular legal problems.
