The amazing Walk for Solar: September 16 - 30, 2012, from Port Augusta to Adelaide
From the Repower Port Augusta website:
This September, we're walking 300km to Repower Port Augusta's coal stations with solar thermal.
Port Augusta is a town at a crossroads. With two coal-fired power stations closing, we have the opportunity to decide whether they are replaced with Australia's first solar thermal power station, or with a dirty gas plant.
The power company, the local council, local community and businesses all want solar - but to make this happen we need the support of the Premier and the Federal Government. We need to make Port Augusta a national issue.
Join us in walking from the 16th to 30th September, 300km all the way from Port Augusta to Premier Weatherill's door in Adelaide. Together we'll shine the national spotlight on the opportunity for solar thermal and make it a national moment the country can't ignore.
