Re-imagine Re-think Re-energise - sustainability events for Nillumbik

Clean Energy Nillumbik (CEN) has an exciting series of events planned for the Shire of Nillumbik throughout spring. You can look forward to some fun new events and ideas as well as programs you can join. This has been made possible through the Practically Green grant funding from Nillumbik Shire Council.

If you are interested in participating in one of the events or would like to join Clean Energy Nillumbik as a member or volunteer, contact CEN at secretary@cleanenergynillumbik.org.au

CEN are looking for active and enthusiastic Nillumbik residents and business owners who can help with all the events below. There are lots of jobs so we’ll match you to tasks that fit your interests, skills and available time.

Here’s what CEN have planned, with virtual alternatives in case of social distancing restrictions:

Community bulk purchase program: reverse cycle heating and cooling

If you are thinking about replacing your current heating and/or cooling with something more efficient, we have done the hard work for you and sourced two efficient product ranges at competitive prices, to be installed by a Nillumbik business with an outstanding reputation for their customer service and workmanship.

Practically Green Waste Art Sculpture

As part of the Practically Green events for 2020, Lachlan Plain was awarded the commission to create a sculpture using electronic waste that represented our future using renewable energy. Lachlan created Family Unit: 2084. Remarkably, the sculpture depicts modern family communications, predominantly using screen time – who would have thought it in 2020, the year that keeps on giving?

Keep an eye out for viewing locations
