Positive Charge has had another successful year, having assisted in the installation of 2,031kW of solar installed on households throughout Victoria and NSW. This reduces CO2 emissions by 56,364 tonnes, which is the equivalent of 1,460,738 tree seedlings grown for 10 years.
Positive Charge also assisted 1,405 householders by offering tailored advice through energy assessments and phone advice, and spoke to more than 2,000 people at events all over Victoria.
Thanks to the breadth of Positive Charge’s experience working with diverse communities across Victoria and now Our Energy Future’s experience in NSW for the past six months, MEFL is able to use these programs to provide a clear path of action for community members to reduce their carbon emissions. The Positive Charge and Our Energy Future telephone advice line and energy assessments offer tailored advice, whilst the partnerships with carefully selected suppliers mean that people can be linked with quality products and services to ensure action is taken.
Here’s a recent example of Positive Charge out and about – Lucy Best travelled to Surf Coast Shire to talk with the locals about the Council’s “Power Up” bulk-buy program.
