Our 2019 AGM and subsequent meeting was a great opportunity to discuss what Energise Ōtaki and members have been able to accomplish in the last year.
Leigh Ramsey, Chair of Energise Ōtaki has announced a community solar farm project that will
harvest energy from the sun to fund community energy projects in Ōtaki.
Ōtaki College is exploring the possibility of wood pellet gasification to feed its existing school boiler used for heating.
At least 11 tonnes of food is wasted in Ōtaki town every week. This amounts to about $500 per household being lost in a year, quite apart from the landfill emissions. A huge amount of energy used to process and transport this food is also wasted.
