The BREAZE Board invites you to attend the 2016 AGM.   

The Board is keen to get members of our community involved in our activities. 

If you have any ideas you would like to implement, prepared to volunteer for one off or ongoing activities, be part of the board, involved in a related environmental group or just want to see what goes on we would be pleased to see you.  

If you have any questions regarding the AGM, nomination or proxy forms please call 0432 635 637.

The official business of the AGM is to elect our board members and office bearers.   

However, we would like to invite interested parties to join us for light refreshments after the AGM for a general informal discussion.

2016 05 SSBB Launch 8It’s been an action packed few months for BREAZE members with Sustainable House Day, the renewal of BREAZE’s permit to conduct the Ballarat Farmers Market for the next 2 years and the unveiling of BREAZE’s first community renewable energy project at BRI last Thursday.

While these events have consumed much time and effort by our Board and volunteers, we have also been busy in our advocacy roles making a submission to the Victorian Parliamentary Enquiry into Community Renewable Energy Projects and responses in the media to the recent criticism of the progressive state’s renewable energy targets.

The BREAZE Board has sold down its shareholding in BREAZE Energy Solutions to 20%.

BES logo

Since its inception BREAZE has been involved in the sale of renewable energy solutions. Together with the changes in regulation, acceptance and normalisation of solar hot water and electricity in the community, and the administration costs involved, your Board undertook a very thorough review of the need to be the sole shareholder in BREAZE Enterprises Pty Ltd, trading as BREAZE Energy Solutions, earlier this year.

The outcome of this review was that it would be in the best interest of both organisations for BREAZE Inc. to reduced its shareholding to 20%.
