A fascinating conversation with Aaron Yew, Co-founder and CEO of the Peoples’ Grid. We started off talking about how states used to own our power stations but over time they have all been centralised and now is the time to decentralise. Christie Walk, where I have lived for nearly 16 years is an urban eco-community, 27 households on 2000square metres with much of it being green space and lots of shared resources. Aaron is looking at forming energy collectives with communities such as ours. He mentions he is working with Brian Loffler who is Christie Walk’s resident environmental planner, leading the way towards greater sustainability. For more information look up Urban Ecology Australia, the organisation that facilitated the development of Christie Walk.
