Dear Friends of Renewable Energy Benalla
The last twelve months has presented many challenges, however one positive thing that did occur was that ordinary people did some amazing things to help others who were struggling. It seemed that a sense of community became important once again. I write about this as Renewable Energy Benalla is very much in need of this community spirit.
I believe that most of you will know that Renewable Energy Benalla, (REB), has a vision of Benalla becoming a zero net energy town by reducing and balancing local stationary energy needs with a 100% renewable energy supply.
Beyond Zero Emissions, a national climate think-tank has helped REB develop the Benalla Stationary Energy Transition Strategy, with its goal of 100% renewable stationary energy by 2028.
However, achieving zero net energy by 2028 is an ambitious and complex task. I am writing to you as Renewable Energy Benalla (REB) urgently needs more people to help us to achieve this goal.
While this letter is about seeking help for REB, I believe that there are benefits for those who volunteer to become involved with REB. You would become part of a group of like-minded people who are concerned about leaving a safer climate for our children and grandchildren, as well as helping to build a sustainable and renewable energy future for Benalla. By being an active and connected member of REB you would be helping to rebuild the sense of community, which is so important. Your involvement would certainly promote a sense of purpose and achievement. You will also be meeting new people with whom you will be able to share your skills and learn new skills from them.
Some of the ways in which people could help REB are:
Background information on REB and its activities is included in the attachment.
As I have said above, Renewable Energy Benalla urgently needs more people to help us achieve our goal. If you are willing to help us do this, please contact me by email or phone.
