October Forum: Alt Option Energy

Thursday, 4 Oct
7:00 pm

SLA’s October forum will be a twofold presentation in regards to solar power and energy use generally.

Adam Blakester, from Starfish Initiatives, will provide an update on the impact of the “Farming the Sun” community solar collaboration, within a snapshot of Australia’s energy transition and sustainability generally. This is a call for ALT_OPTIONS_ENERGY, focusing on technology and culture in tandem.

Adam’s work focuses on rural & regional sustainability — improving community wellness in ways that are environmentally sustainable & economically equitable. With qualifications originally in commerce & taxation law Adam blends strong business & organisational acumen with expertise in social change, social leadership, social marketing, community psychology, consciousness, facilitation, strategic planning, human development & wellness.

Additionally, Cameron Dalgleish, from New England Solar Power, will provide an overview of the options available for monitoring your energy use — from both installed solar power and that pulled off the grid. Energy monitoring is becoming more accessible and affordable and really is the first step to reducing your electricity bill, becoming more efficient as a household and understanding whether solar and batteries would benefit you. He will also outline some of the technologies available and some more advanced features related to electricity monitoring for battery owners.

Cameron is Office Manager at NESP and provides services to homes and businesses to reduce their energy consumption and energy costs.

The forum will start at 7pm at Kent House on Thursday 4th October.  All are welcome to attend – gold coin donation appreciated.
