Electrify Bouddi launches

– a brighter future powered by community

Climate change can push us into a state of despair and inaction, but Electrify Bouddi believes change starts with local communities. We want to inspire everyone in the Bouddi community to take the next step in our journey towards a zero emissions future.

Electrify Bouddi is a not-for-profit community association for Bouddi residents and local businesses who want to reduce their climate impact, build climate resilience and save money on energy.

Electrify Bouddi generates and shares reliable information, knowledge and guidance to develop individual and community-level energy solutions. We have already learned our community has a strong desire to address the challenges of navigating multiple sources of information and the limitations of acting individually. We are all finding it uplifting to work together to make sure our community benefits from the rapid and comprehensive decentralisation of energy systems in Australia. The association is building a network of engaged community members to offer inspiration and opportunities to take positive action.

Do you want to lower your energy bills and reduce carbon pollution, but don’t know where to start? Do you want to know how a heat pump works or find out about installing solar? Electrify Bouddi provides reliable information and workshops to help householders decide the best course of action to meet their needs and budget.

If you don’t know where to begin or how to find reliable products and installers, come to the Electrify Bouddi Launch Party. Everyone is welcome to this free community event.

Where: Killcare Surf Club When: Saturday 4 May Time: 11am till 3pm
