Farmers for Climate Action is delivering a series of on-farm renewables workshops for farmers across northern Victoria in the first week of October.
The workshops will explore the benefits renewable energy, storage and electrification bring to farm businesses and communities. Farmers will hear from experts in electrification and renewables, and other farmers who have made the switch to cheaper, cleaner energy.
Farmers for Climate Action CEO Natalie Collard said a recent survey by Farmers for Climate action clearly shows participating farmers overwhelmingly support Australia’s shift to more renewable energy in the energy grid.
“Farmers are excited about the opportunities switching to renewables and electrifying farm operations can bring - but they want to know more about it and they want support to get on with it,” Ms Collard said.
Farmers for Climate Action is delivering workshops in the first week of October for farmers and community members in Seymour, Echuca, Bendigo, Mildura and Euroa.
“Climate change is making farming harder, but primary producers are keen to protect their business and the future of farming families in our regions.
“Embracing renewable energy and storage solutions is one thing farmers can do to lower power bills and increase their resilience in the face of an unpredictable climate,” said Ms Collard.
The events are free to any farmer or community member. Locals can register to attend the event at the Farmers for Climate Action website here.
