Make Solar Easy – Feb 9

Wednesday, February 9, 2022 7:30pm - 9:00pm
Location: Online via Zoom & Facebook Live

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.

As part of Lighter Footprints’ participation as a community partner in the MCPH, we have been able arrange access for Boroondara and surrounds to the MCPH Solar Program for householders and businesses. The program has been running successfully in Yarra, where the MCPH lead organisation Yarra Energy Foundation, has organised the installation of over 18,000 solar panels on the rooftops of homes and businesses across Melbourne. Peter will also touch on the benefits of maximising your solar by moving towards efficient electric appliances, with further information available.

Whether you are just starting on your solar journey or at the final stages, this presentation will help you sort through your options and offer you choice and independent advice.
