Who is this website for?
This website was set up by Geelong Sustainability Group as part of the Community Power Hub program. While the site is tailored for residents of the Barwon South West region, with information specific to our climate zone and links to local suppliers, most of the information is also relevant to homeowners, builders and renters elsewhere - in particular those in moderate or cool climates (climate zones 6 & 7).
