Friends of Felton wins Carbon Challenge!

Congratulations to the Friends of Felton team who won their section of the Upper Condamine Carbon Challenge. The competition was run as part of the Qld Government's Low Carbon Diet community funding project, which encourages individuals to reduce their greenhouse gas emmissions. Our team installed solar panels for electricity generation, changed lightbulbs, planted trees, and switched to more efficient household appliances & cars, amongst other things. Team Leader Janet Bishop said the group wanted to show that "we are committed to reducing the impact of greenhouse gas emissions. By taking the Carbon Challenge, we reduced the need for new coal based power sources such as the proposed project in the Felton Valley. We can change the way we live and use energy."
