ABC Radio National Breakfast: NT solar trial looks to address energy poverty in remote Aboriginal communities

Rolling lockdowns in heatwave conditions across the Northern Territory has thrown a spotlight on high energy needs of remote communities, where having your power cut off can seriously impact your health.

A trial is now underway to test potential long-term solutions with families in the remote town of Tennant Creek making the switch to solar energy.

Guest: Dr Simon Quilty, doctor in Alice Springs; Fellow at the School of Population Health at the Australian National University
