Get your solar questions answered at MASH+ Info Meetings

Have you been interested in solar power but found it hard to get your questions answered? Most of us have had phone calls from sales people who haven’t had a clue about things like how many panels you need, how much you could realistically expect to save on your power bill and whether you should insist on components made in western countries.

Now with the Mount Alexander Solar Homes (MASH+) Info Meetings you can have your questions answered. The first meeting will be at the Civic Centre, Castlemaine (next to the Town Hall) starting at 5pm, followed by another session at 6.45pm. The following Wednesday, 16th July, there will be meetings at Campbells Creek Community Centre starting at 5pm and at the Maldon Neighbourhood Centre Hall at 7pm.

Mayor Michael Redden will open the Castlemaine Info Meetings. Other speakers will include Geoff Lodge of Goulburn Valley Community Energy, Stephen Breheny, the installer for this project and Neil Barrett from the Hub Foundation.

According to Neil, “This is a great opportunity for interested people to find out whether the MASH+ solar panels offer is right for them. There will be informative, short speeches, leaving plenty of time for questions. We are delighted that Mount Alexander Shire is a major partner of MASH+ and thank the Council for the use of their Civic Centre for the first of the Info Meetings, as well as providing the light refreshments for all meetings.”
