MicroGrids under consideration for the Eurobodalla

Southcoast Health and Sustainability Alliance - SHASA, and their partner Micro Energy Systems Australia (MESA) are teaming up with the Australian National University, and Essential Energy to submit an application for federal funding for a feasibility study into 8 Microgrids across the Eurobodalla. They would love you to sign their on-line petition to help demonstrate the strong support of the community to make this happen.

The 3 year study into microgrids will involve lots of community consultation into what will work in our area and to ensure that the microgrid will be useful during normal power needs and also in emergency situations if the "usual" power supply goes down. This is important considering all the experiences with the 2019/20 bush fires and the need to make electricity in Eurobodalla more reliable and resilient.

What is a Microgrid? It is a small network of electricity users with a local source of supply that is usually attached to a centralized national grid but is able to function independently. You can show your support by signing this petition HERE.
