Our Mission

To forward the objective of 100% renewable energy use in Mount Alexander Shire and inspire and encourage community focus on moving urgently towards 100% clean energy by 2023.

We acknowledge the Dja Dja Wurrung people, the traditional custodians of the land upon which we gather and we pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging.

News Flash! The West End Energy Group is offering our second free community workshop this month. This one focuses on fixing gaps and cracks to save energy in our homes. More details here.

Castlemaine Secondary College students are in the spotlight for their outstanding climate action campaigns. Just below you can watch a fun video that they made in 2018. With this winning video, they won solar panels for their school! And read what they are up to now in 2022 as they argue for a lowering of the voting age so they can have an even louder voice. Just pop over to our Great Schools page.

Electrify 2515

Grassroots plan to ‘electrify’ northern Wollongong suburb promoted as Australian-first

A pilot program to “electrify” households on the northern beaches of Wollongong could be a world first and act as a proving ground to save billions in future energy costs while radically reducing household emissions.

Many individuals are doing what they can. But real success can only come if there is a change in our societies and in our economics and in our politics.
