In the spirit of not allowing things to become somebody else's problem, I am recruiting two friends to adopt their local substation, shown below. All that they need to do is have a look at it every time they drive past, and to call Energy Australia on 13 15 35 if they see graffiti.
There are a few dozen substations across the Canada Bay area. All that I need to do now is get a substation adoption program going. I'm going to print out a flyer and stick it in the letterboxes of the houses that are closest to each substation, asking them to adopt their substation and simply call 13 15 35 if it needs to be repainted.
It will be interesting to see what the uptake is like.
