Solar Energy Seminars at Bermagui – April 2 and 3

They will run from 5.15 pm to 6.45 pm in the Bermagui Country Club Auditorium.

Both will follow a similar format:
a presentation by CEFE on solar energy, generation, storage and the possibility of trading directly with friends and neighbours. We will also report on the first year of our program to install rooftop solar;
Representatives of CEFE’s two bulk buy contractors – Ekonomix from Cobargo and Sunny Afternoons of Moruya – will be there to show their distinct offerings for panels, inverters and optional battery storage;
One on one discussions between the suppliers and anybody wanting more detail on costs, savings and technical details.
Each of the three events will be limited to twenty families so that CEFE and our suppliers will be able to give more personal attention to individual needs.

Booking essential. You can book here Alternatively you can email CEFE Bermagui co-convener Bill Caldicott for more details at [email protected] or call him on 0427 938 220.

So, if you’re thinking of installing solar, have installed solar and would like to share your experiences or are just interested in reducing your power bills AND our impact on the planet, do come along.

Human signs across Australia -and across the world?

;
At the Climate Council’s City Power Partnership conference held in Kiama on October 18 2018 CEFE President Matthew Nott was a keynote speaker. In his presentation he floated the idea of communities across Australia each making part of a human sign calling for action by politicians on climate change. The idea was enthusiastically taken up by the councils and community groups present. Compared with the human signs crafted in CEFE’s early days (you can check some of them out here) where it was an expensive business chartering an aircraft to capture the sign and hard to synchronise the sign formation with the aircraft arrival, drone technology has made the process a whole lot simpler.

The intention is to spell out the message MAKE THE SWITCH NOW … 100% RENEWABLES …IMAGINE. There will be multiple versions of each word, each done by a different community. Play the video above to see how the project is developing. The NOW sign being constructed at the beginning of the video was for a sign on the lawns of old Parliament House that the conclusion of the ‘Human Face of Climate Change – an Urgent Climate Briefing’ event held on Novemeber 29 organised by the Multifaith Association of SA and others. Founding CEFE stalwart Philippa Rowland is now President of the MultiFaith Association of SA. You can read the coverage from the Guardian here
