As part of Christchurch Energy Awareness programme April/May 2012, there are a heap of free public site tours to renewable energy sites (including the Windflow turbine), and energy dialogues and pubic and business talks. See http://www.cafe.gen.nz/
On 9 May, Joe Bennett and Gary McCormick will debate the topic "Cheaper energy is best. We can't afford renewable energy." What would you argue???
