BREAZE's Peter Reid on 3BA - 26 Feb @ 10:15am


Do tune into 3BA on Friday 26 February to hear Peter Reid talk to Brett about BREAZE’s recent Social Solar projects – and how the State Government funded Ballarat Community Power Hub pilot (undertaken by BREAZE 2017-2020) facilitated BREAZE’s major projects in 2020-2021 – administration of $450,000 from the Grampians Renewable Energy (GRE) program. This program involves the installation of 365kW of solar PV across 7 local organisations, 3 social housing providers, 2 not-for-profit community organisations and 2 community sporting organisations. A state government stimulus funding package to help create jobs in the region, GRE is cutting GHG emissions and bringing cheaper electricity to those who need it most – the central mission of BREAZE Social Solar.


BREAZE thanks 3BA for the opportunity to talk about these great opportunities that renewable energy is opening up for our region.

Every fourth Friday in 2021, a BREAZE Board member will join Brett at 10:15 am to discuss matters related to the environment, the climate and sustainable living.

The full schedule of speakers and topics is detailed below.
