Oct 28, 2016: Suncrowd! What a Buzz!

I’ve had a bit of a break from our Fibro Home Energy Retrofit this week because I’ve been busy with the first two Suncrowd information sessions. And WOW!, what a week it’s been. We had about 250 people come to the first Southern Highlands event on Wednesday night at Mittagong RSL Club. Then I was asked to help with the first Shoalhaven event at the Bomaderry Bowling Club last night because they were overwhelmed with over 400 people in attendance. I didn’t have time to take pictures at the Highlands event but I did grab the following snaps in Bomaderry last night.

As you can see, this was a VERY well attended event… and rightly so. Suncrowd has put together some really great deals for top quality solar power and battery storage systems.

And don’t worry if you weren’t able to make it to either event this week (or if you live in other parts of SE NSW) there are plenty more information sessions coming up. There’ll be a second Highlands event in Moss Vale on November 15th, and another Shoalhaven event in Ulladulla on November 29th (and another in Nowra to be announced). There are also upcoming events in the Goulburn, Blue Mountains and Wollongong areas which you can find on the Suncrowd website at suncrowd.com.au.

In total over 1500 people have already registered to attend one of these free information sessions which are a great way to learn about how to be part of the new energy future.

Call to Climate Action

Just in case you need some extra motivation to join the Suncrowd movement, check out this extract from a New Zealand newspaper from 1912. It was sent to me by a friend in the US and contains a very precise and succinct warning about the Climate Change Problem.

Unfortunately they underestimated the number of centuries it would require for the effects of carbon dioxide buildup to be felt but we can’t say we weren’t warned. So, if you’re sitting on the fence thinking, ‘Maybe I should wait a bit longer for the price of solar and/or batteries to come down a bit more, etc, etc…’ My personal opinion is that the time to act has long passed. Suncrowd is making it really easy to get a great deal on a renewable energy system and help a local community group in the process. So do something for yourself, your community and your planet and get on board.

Next week I hope to be back on the tools and working to replace some of the windows in the old house next to the Greeny Flat.

Cheers, Andy

p.s. I love that you could get both the Rodney and Otamatea Times and the Waitamata and Kaipara Gazette for 10 shillings per annum but you had to pay in advance.
