A team of riders representing Dandenong Ranges Renewable Energy Association recently held its third ‘Ride for Solar’ to promote the merits of solar power and renewable energy.

On the ride from Belgrave to Federation Square, the group advertised solar power’s three benefits: It provides clean energy, cuts power bills and generates jobs.

DRREA President, Peter Cook, said “it is great to see local businesses installing large solar systems to reduce their power bills and to help the environment. For example, in Ferntree Gully, three businesses that deserve congratulations are Maxi Supermarket, Natures Organics and Tasty Trucks”.

“To us all, they are pioneers that have set a good example to their local community,” Mr Cook said.
