Transition Towns are local communities building resilience in response to peak oil, CSG & climate change.
Our aim is to provide an open network for everyone interested in living sustainability throughout the Northern Rivers. Our website provides information, contacts, resources, videos and details of events and meetings that are going on in Byron Shire and the North Coast of NSW.

FREE Help to Reduce Your Household Energy Use is available from Enova, even if you aren't a customer of theirs. How good is that!
Enova Community has a dedicated team of volunteers who are passionate about helping households to reduce their energy consumption. And they've now developed a way to give you free energy efficiency assessments remotely. All you need to do is register via this link:
We would like to thank our kind and generous supporters for the $3,400 raised so far, but to reach our target of $10,000 we really do need your help. You don’t need to dig deep, only what you can afford.
Enova Community Energy, with partners Enosi Australia and University of Newcastle, have been granted funding from the NSW Government’s Regional Community Energy Fund for a Shared Community Battery project in Regional NSW!
This project will enable Enova to commission and install a 2MWh battery in a regional NSW location, implement peer-to-peer trading (provided by partner Enosi) of the stored energy across 500 Enova customers, and aims to reduce electricity bills for Enova customers.
We're super proud to be amongst the recipients of the Regional Community Energy Fund projects across the state!!
More info about our Shared Community Battery Project COMING SOON!
“A cost affordable change in the use, and generation of energy is needed, to save our world from climate change. Byron Eco Park is proud to announce an important energy breakthrough for the Byron Bay region. Byron Shire Council has approved the Shire's first local, 5 MegaWatt, Solar Farm, at Byron Eco Park, which is nestled between Tyagarah airstrip and the Byron Bay Beach. This exciting new innovation will feature double sided solar panels, and solar tracking, for maximum efficiency. The cutting edge design requires no landscaping or concrete footings, is raised above any possible flood level, is low maintenance and will be sited in pasture without disturbing bees, insects or butterflies. This is the first step towards the creation of a local, independent, green energy micro grid for the Byron region, giving us our own source of low cost, reliable, green energy. It is also planned that excess solar energy, produced by the system, could generate hydrogen to supply the first local fueling station, for fuel cell electric vehicles. We intend to hold a series of seminars, for Farm Owners, here at Byron Eco Park, and share our knowledge, so that this important new renewable energy concept can be reproduced right across the country. Follow us on Facebook, at facebook.com/ byronecopark, for the latest Green Energy and electric vehicle news, and up to date information, on fixing the climate.”
Few and far between...Mullum Solar Car Park - EV Charging Station out of action
Unfortunately, due to recent rain the power box at our EV charging station has been damaged.
As a result the station is out of action and repairs are underway.
Alternatives for charging are: 2 x NRMA DC fast charging stations at The Farm AC charging station at Habitat (BYO charging cable) AC charging station in the underground car park at Woolworths in Byron (BYO charging cable)
