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.
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.
Let's get to know our State MPs and hear their thoughts and reflections on the year that was. COVID has dominated our lives but the wheels of government have continued to turn and we are delighted that three of our local leaders will be joining us to share what made them hopeful and what caused them to dispair in 2021, with a particular emphasis on climate.
This is your chance to engage with John Kennedy, the member for Hawthorn, Paul Hamer, the member for Box Hill and Will Fowles, the member for Burwood. Did you know both Paul Hamer and Will Fowles sit on Parliament's Environment and Planning committee or that Paul Hamer is particularly passionate about transport or that John Kennedy regulary attends our events? All three MPs care about climate. Let's find out what they hope can be achieved in 2022.
