Time to practice what we preach!

At our own home we have water efficient tap ware around the home, in the kitchen, bathrooms and laundry with also tank water to supply toilets and laundry taps to further save water.

Energy efficient appliances and fixtures have been installed in the kitchen and bathroom to save on water and power supply.Also, we have recently upgraded our lighting to power saving LED light fittings.

All these types of water and power saving upgrades have been installed over time as tap ware, appliances and fixtures have failed or shown their age. These choices are both good for the environment as well as the house budget.

We have a North facing home with a large roof area facing the sun… Time for a Solar Panel System to be installed on our home.

Further information can be found on the Australian Energy Foundation website.

The description of their existence is:

We’re your trusted advisor that can provide guidance based upon customer interests first. We provide advice and referrals for quotes to our suppliers to make your home, business, community group or school more energy efficient.

With the help and guidance of Australian Energy Foundation we were recommended installation by Gippsland Solar where we have installed a 10kw Solar System on our home. The new solar system will not only supply our home but also put power supply back into the power grid.

Gippsland Solar have been involved in many large projects around Melbourne and country Victoria, also installations on many homes and businesses. We did our own research and were pleasantly surprised by the professional services provided to us by Gippsland Solar.

From accessing our home for the installation of a solar system, arranging a quote to take advantage of any government incentives, consultation and installation of our new solar system on our home, the process has been first rate.
