It’s all systems go in Canterbury-Bankstown, where solar energy is playing a key role in the City’s future.
More than 9000 homes in Canterbury-Bankstown have already installed over 30,000Kw of solar, and are
reaping the benefits.
Padstow resident Tony Finneran installed solar panels on the family home three years ago and said if residents want to reduce power costs they should get on board.
“Our house is expensive to run, with a heated pool, air conditioning and a heater, the bills were excessive,” he said.
“The return of investment is said to be up to eight years, however we saw an immediate reduction in power costs.
“The long term gain not only involves saving money, it also benefits future buyers and contributes to improving the environment.”
To continue CBCity’s switch to solar, the team at The Australian Energy Foundation have returned for the fifth year in a row to offer support and assistance to residents looking to turn to solar energy.
Mayor Khal Asfour said utilising solar energy is a way the City can collectively reduce emissions and create a more sustainable future.
“We are trying to normalise the process, which is why I encourage residents looking to go ‘green’ to attend the solar and battery information session on Wednesday 11 March at Canterbury-Hurlstone Park RSL Club,” he said.
“They can learn anything from how solar and battery storage works, to finding the right system and supplier for their home.
“It’s important that we all look at how we can use energy more sustainably now and in the future.”
