The WISEgroup, once a separately incorporated organisation, is now the energy project team for the Macedon Ranges Sustainability Group. WISE seeks to help the community take responsibility for its energy and carbon future by developing local projects. These projects include:

  • developing a renewable energy fund (MR.Ref) to assist the financing of public solar installations
  • providing a tax deductible Carbon offset initiative (C3)
  • working with BREAZE to provide competitive solar installations
  • exploring options for solarising businesses and community buildings
  • measuring wind speeds to determine the attractiveness of a community wind farm
