Members of the Benalla Community Energy Project, a working group of Renewable Energy Benalla, attended the meeting of Renewable Energy Benalla on Monday 15 November where it was agreed that the two groups should combine and act as one action group. Thank you to BCEP members for attending the meeting, which led to some positive results.
The minutes of November's meeting are included below. I have previously forwarded to Peter Holmes, BSFG President, the section of the minutes that relate to issues to discuss with BSFG, and David Blore has also met with him to discuss these issues.
As recorded in the minutes, Benalla Community Energy Project (BCEP) is currently in the process of installing solar panels on Bernard Briggs kindergarten. We work with the North East Regional Pre-School association (NERPSA) who manage the kindergarten and they are who BSFG makes the loan to, to pay for the installation. The estimated savings they should make with the installation of the panels suggests a quarterly repayment of $350.
In relation to the next meeting, we will need to wait until BSFG has come to some decision about the issues we have raised with them.
