Free Seminar 'Demystifying' Solar Power In Queanbeyan

NSW Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) and Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council are hosting a free 'Demystifying Solar' seminar for businesses and households at Queanbeyan Library on 16 May.

Mark Fleming from OEH said the seminar will explain in plain-English the different types of solar technology available and the trends in solar power use in Australia and around the world.

"We had such a positive response to the last seminar that we are again encouraging people to come along and get the info they need to make decisions that are best for their circumstances," Mr Fleming said.

"We'll also explain the different options available for local businesses wanting to switch to solar and save money on bills.

"Businesses and households often get unsolicited approaches from companies wanting to install solar panels and while most people agree that solar is a good thing, it's hard to compare these offers.

"At the seminar you'll find out the exact questions you should ask suppliers if you are thinking about installing solar panels," said Mr Fleming.

Around 800 people attended the seminars held last year across the region and since then more than 50% of those surveys have either installed solar or are in the process of getting quotes.

"Our goals to make people comfortable to ask the questions on their minds and leave with a much clearer understanding as to if solar is right for them," Mr Fleming said.
