Energy Efficiency
Projects and Working Groups

In keeping with a ZNET strategy, we would be looking to move households away from gas wherever possible, or at least, to create a viable path for them to make this move in the near future.

Our houses are a great source of green house gas emissions. The Australian residential sector is responsible for around 24% of overall electricity use and more than 10% of total carbon emissions in Australia . The Victorian gas sector contributes to around 17% of our state’s net greenhouse gas emissions and must play its part in reducing emissions over time.

We offer some suggestions of how you can take action in your home in the choices you make when making purchases, My Next Step, and also in planning Renovations and Retrofitting, Retrofit Options.

To forward the objective of 100% renewable energy use in Mount Alexander Shire and inspire and encourage community focus by telling the stories of projects in town.
