Too much gas from Taylor

Goulburn’s community-owned solar power station will be 100 per cent clean and pumping nothing but profits into the local community.

This month CE4G announced the opportunity to purchase shares in Goulburn’s own 100 per cent renewable energy power station:

  • By July 2021, supported by a grant from the NSW Government via the Regional Community Energy Fund, CE4G will have built a 1.8MW DC community-owned proven technology solar farm backed by proven technology battery storage.
  • All residents of the Goulburn Mulwaree Council area have the opportunity to purchase shares, keeping all the profits from the solar farm within the community.
  • And that’s not all: a percentage of annual revenue will be placed into a Community Fund to assist those within the Goulburn community who struggle to pay their electricity bills.

In the same month our own Federal member and Emissions Reduction Minister Angus Taylor announced a massive investment….no, not in emissions-reducing renewables….but in emissions producing gas.

Angus’ advisory body is the National COVID-19 Commission chaired by Neville Power, who happens to be the ex managing director and CEO of Fortescue and the current Deputy Chair of Strike Energy, a gas exploration company. No conflict of interest there?

It’s now 13 years since Kevin Rudd described climate change as the “greatest moral challenge of our time”. Since then we have had six Prime Ministers but not one coherent effective climate policy”, says Ed Suttle, local farmer and Vice President of CE54G.
