Make Solar Easy – Feb 9

Rooftop solar is so popular - slashing energy bill costs, lowering your carbon footprints and paying for itself in around 3 - 6 years. However for many people, the biggest barrier is access to the right information. This is where the Metro Community Power Hub (MCPH) can offer independent advice, connecting you with trusted suppliers and discounted solar.

Make Solar Easy Feb 9 MCPH Solar Program with Peter Mercouriou

Peter Mercouriou, MCPH Manager and experienced solar advisor, will guide us through a discussion on the right kind of setup, what sort of panels, heritage factors, whether a battery should be included, and how the MCPH can help with choosing suppliers and installers. The program only works with carefully vetted installers and offers discounts of up to 20% off.

Global capital is fleeing the fossil industries as more and more countries are accelerating their transition to clean energy, pledge to cut methane, and seizing first mover opportunities in more difficult sectors like green steel, cement and transport. Australia is so well positioned to take advantage of this unstoppable transition with world beating amounts of renewable resources, minerals and a suitable workforce.
