Rocky Hall RFS Shed Solar Installation

The 3.7kW solar system is connected to a battery which will provide up to five hours of emergency backup power. This will  give the brigade some security in times of emergencies, like during Black Summer bushfires when the district lost all its power.

Supporting CEFE and the Rocky Hall Rural Fire Brigade were the Wyndham Progress Association and Wyndham Men’s Shed – as well as a host of locals who turned up on a very wet afternoon fund raising concert, which was shifted from the sports ground to the Wyndham Hall.
