Join Friday Forum on April 28 for an exciting talk on Noosa’s next big step in renewable energy: Community Batteries!  

Noosa residents and businesses already love their solar, with over 83MW installed to date. But storage is the next big focus. There’s lots of excess solar generated during the day that can be stored and released at night. Discover how community batteries can store excess solar energy for night-time use, reduce emissions, lower energy costs, and enhance security and reliability.

Noosa Council with Zero Emissions Noosa submitted a grant application for a Community Battery in Noosaville.  ZEN has been awarded a grant from the State Government to develop a Roadmap for a network of community batteries in the Noosa Shire.

Don’t miss this chance to hear from Annie Nolan, Noosa Council’s Carbon Reduction Officer, and Geoff Acton, co-convenor of the Noosa Community Battery Initiative. Together, they’ll shed light on this innovative, neighbourhood-focused solution.

Everyone is welcome at the Noosa Parks Association Environment Centre, 5 Wallace Drive, Noosaville on April 28. The forum starts at 10:30am and morning tea is available at 10-10.25am. Entry is $5 by “tap & go” at the door which includes morning tea/coffee. 

Join the bird observers at 8.30am in the carpark for interpretive birding.
