For lowering down the carbon emissions, it is important for a wider public to come forward and participate in the project. According to sustainability leaders, for accomplishing this task, the State and federal governments need to support smaller-scale community renewable energy (CRE) projects. This way only they can succeed in engaging more and more people in this human effort.
In this regard, as told by Deb Porter, secretary of Moorabool Environment Group (MEG), they have decided to develop a community solar farm in Bacchus Marsh. With the help of this farm, they would not only generate more power for the entire community, but it would also create enhanced tourism interest for the area. He added, "Power bills would be contained and power and control given back to the community. Not every roof is suitable for panels. Renters can't, for example".
This proposal has attracted many farmers and other residents of the area. Many of them have agreed to give a part of their land for the solar farm. To meet the increasing utility costs, it's a nice way to invest and get immediate returns.
As told by chief executive of Sustainable Regional Australia, Leah Sertori, even large companies are also in favor of this proposal. They are too approaching her to take initiatives for reducing energy consumption.
