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.

Who Are We?
We are a group of local citizens and business owners of The Mount Alexander Shire who are helping our local businesses reach 100% clean energy by 2023. We have evolved from MACET, the Mount Alexander Climate Emergency Team, established in 2019.
Now we have created this website to celebrate those who wish to move to 100% clean energy quickly.
This web site is in its infancy but we want to encourage you to join us if you are interested in this challenge.
Stories and images of local businesses that are on the road to 100% clean energy. Read what they say about how they are doing it.
Find all the help you need here to take advantage of Federal and State grants, tax concessions, rebates and offers.
