COOLmob Low-income project has its final event
On May 26, COOLmob celebrated the conclusion of its $2.7 million Low-Income Energy Efficiency Project (LIEEP). Over 480 households in Darwin improved their energy efficiency, cut their power bills and reduced their impact on the climate.
At an event at NT Parliament House, COOLmob presented the final results of the long-running campaign to members of parliament including NT environment minister Gary Higgins.
ECNT would like to congratulate COOLmob on the completion of this project.

Notice to all Environment Centre members
Circumstances mean we need to reconsider for operational reasons our choice of auditor for the 2015-2016 financial year. We need to convene a Special General meeting on Wednesday 22 June at 6pm in the Environment Centre office to seek approval for the following recommendation.
“that we approve the appointment of BDH Consulting the be the auditor of the Environment Centre accounts for the 2015-2016 financial year”.
We are seeking this change because it will be an operational advantage to ECNT. We invite attendees to stay for a chat and snacks following the meeting.
