NEW!! Far North Coast Food Recovery Project by the CONC - We are looking for donations to support the operating costs....we got a grant for a lot of the infrastructure but we need a bit more to get the ball rolling.

To support this intiative see our Go Fund Me campaign.

End of the Feed In Tariff: UPDATE - Important!! GOOD NEWS!! Just when we had given up all hope of Essential Energy coming to the party, they have now advised that an appropriately qualified electrician can rewire the single phase Gross Meter for Net and submit a notice of service work to Essential Energy. They will then change the Gross Meter register 70 to Net in their system.

This is only applicable for single phase installations and the cost is around $180.00 as opposed to $385.00 for a new Net meter. If the installation is 2 or 3 phase a 3 phase Net meter must be installed at a cost of around $645.00.

This is relevant to people who either do not want smart meters OR cannot have smart meters due to poor mobile phone reception.
