www.icnnt.org.au A small NT business is cashing in on the move towards green energy. Eco Power NT has so far supplied two streetlights and is looking to do more. It is understood that councils including at Oenpelli (Gunbalanya) and Pine Creek are looking to the new technology. Director Janene Dansie said the lights could be connected to the grid or taken off the grid to work as standalone units. They cost roughly the same as existing lights and contain LEDs. The company has recently installed one of the standalone units in a dark laneway at Palmerston which resident Andrew Griffiths successfully campaigned to have council illuminate. Eco Power NT has also partnered with Chinese company Build Your Dreams to design batteries to enable remote communities to run off-grid on either solar power or hydro power. Ms Dansie and her husband started the company last April but the long-term Territorians had run an electrical company Electric NT for six years before branching out.

Defence Housing Australia seeks builders who can remove the concrete slabs, driveways, trees and fences from more than 70 lots. The department is looking for land and soil preparation and management, and protection from erosion. Eaton sits just behind residential Darwin suburb The Narrows, and Member for Solomon Natasha Griggs was campaigning to have the houses and land released for rent or sale to the public to ease the housing crisis. But last March Defence announced 200 of the houses would be removed from the land and sold to the public for less than $100,000 each. The other 277 homes were to be taken to a holding yard. The Department said it would keep the land. Tenders are submitted to the AusTender website. For details ring Sam Chu on (02) 6217 8577.
