Cross benchers join in call for sensible energy policy

Independent Member for Indi Cathy McGowan has led a charge in Parliament by cross-benchers to push the government on sensible, community-focused energy policy. In a terrific speech, Cathy mentioned the work done by community energy groups including Totally Renewable Yackandandah (TRY), Renewable Albury Wodonga Energy (RAW Energy) and Benalla Sustainable Future Group:​

This is the first time all five cross benchers have joined together to speak on a Matter of Public Importance in the last two terms of Parliament.

Georgina Curtis from Cathy’s office sent a thank you message to RAW and other community energy groups who had attended meetings.‘Your assistance over the last few months has given us really clear snapshot of the community activity happening across the electorate and this has acted as our driver to progress an agenda that will see community energy become part of the mainstream energy policy discussion’.​
