Solar For The Future Webinar

Cost: $5



About this Event

Get empowered – answers to your (burning) solar energy questions by an industry expert!

Solar and energy specialist Barbara Elliston has an extensive background in the electricity sector covering generation, transmission, distribution, large industrial consumer and now residential solar PV.

She knows how the whole demand and supply system works, including in-depth knowledge of household energy use and household power bills structure. (She has monitored just about every single appliance in use in residential situations, using ‘power usage monitors’ over extended periods).

Barbara will cover common questions on solar such as:

  • Is solar right for my household (and the aspect of my house) and how much will it cost / save me?
  • How long will systems last and how are they maintained?
  • Why do some people not get what they expected from their solar system?
  • What if I plan to charge an EV?
  • I’m keen to become self sufficient – what do I need to know?
  • Learn how to read your power bill to see if you can maximise your use of solar.
  • And find out what power my house is capable of generating and annual savings (free online tool).

Time for 20 mins Q&A at the end.
