Phil from The Mill in Castlemaine tells the story of their transformation to
100% clean energy
Who Are We?
We are a group of local citizens and business owners of The Mount Alexander Shire who are helping local businesses reach 100% clean energy by 2023.
We have evolved from MACET, the Mount Alexander Climate Emergency Team (established in 2019) and have created this website to celebrate and encourage all those moving quickly to 100% clean energy.
Stories and images of local businesses that are on the road to 100% clean energy … what they say about how they’re doing it.
