TBI columnist Jon Stanger embedded himself with Ballarat Renewable Energy and Zero Emissions (BREAZE) volunteers as they doorknocked Ballarat households seeking residents' views on renewable energy. Part of a National Doorknocking Day under the umbrella of the 100% Renewables campaign, 20 volunteers doorknocked hundreds of houses with 120 surveys completed. This adds to the 10,000 surveys that have been completed around the country.
Jon talked with BREAZE spokesperson and volunteer Maggie Towers about the campaign and how she got involved. Also of interest was a resident of Canadian who has taken on renewable energy as a hobby with solar panels and small wind turbines attached to his house.
