This episode is the first of two that looks at a contentious issue in Castlemaine at the moment, the proposed bioenergy plant. For many who are worried about climate change this kind of renewable energy project seems like a great idea, but those living at its doorstep have some serious reservations.
Allie starts the episode by providing a bit of context and then we hear a presentation given by Deane Belfield at a town meeting. Deane is explains as much as he can about the proposed bioenergy facility.
Next week we will hear the Q&A session that happened after Deane's presentation and also hear from people as they left the hall to see what they thought about it all.
