I have been doing a bit of local campaigning and media awareness to put the Melton Sustainable Living Group in the headlines. As you know, I sent a media release to all of our local papers and radio station a couple of weeks ago.
As a result, here is an interview I did last week that appeared in the Melton Express Telegraph. The article is titled, “Melton green group backs solar”. It shows a picture of me hugging my solar panel up on the roof of my carport and explains about the Solar Suburbs Scheme that our local council and Clear Solar is promoting.
I thought it would be a good idea to give the Solar PV rebate a plug seeing that it ends on June 30th. If you can find a bulk buy scheme in your area, I encourage you to take up this once in a lifetime opportunity of purchasing a 1kW Solar PV system for around A$2,500. It is a bargain and based on the average Australian homes power usage, you should be able to produce at least 25% of your own electricity needs. Join the likes of my fellow bloggers Darren, Moo, the MadGnomes and myself (and anyone I have missed) in taking up this green renewable energy option. You will never look back. I certainly haven’t!
