Unlocking secrets of solar power

June 05, 2017

THE NSW Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) is delivering free ‘Demystifying Solar’ seminars for local businesses on Wednesday.

OEH staff will lead the seminars explaining different options for businesses wanting to switch to solar and save money on energy bills.

South west regional clean energy coordinator for OEH Kylie Walker said the positive response to the last seminars has prompted the new round of events.

“We are again encouraging people to come along and get the information they need to make the decisions that are best for their circumstances,” Ms Walker said.

“We’ll explain in plain English the different types of solar technology available and the trends in solar power use in Australia and around the world.

“Businesses often get unsolicited approaches from companies wanting to install solar panels and while most people agree that solar is a good thing, it’s hard to compare these offers.

“At the seminars you’ll find out the questions you should ask suppliers if you are thinking about installing solar panels.

“Our goal is to ensure everyone leaves with a much clearer understanding of what solar is all about and if it’s the right option for them,” she said

Around 800 people attended the seminars held last year across the region and since then more than 50 per cent of those surveyed have either installed solar or are in the process of getting quotes.

Booking is essential.

The local seminars are Moama at 8-9:30am at the Seniors Community Centre and at Deniliquin’s Coach House hotel motel from 12-1.30pm.
