Electrify Mackellar

There was an ‘electric atmosphere’ in the Avalon Rec Centre on Sunday 30th July when ZESN joined with some 12 other exhibitors and an estimated 300 participants at the Life Electric Expo. The ZESN team of Kate, Alan and Chris supported local ‘Go Solar Mackellar’ group with Solar Made Simple flyers and jointly discussed rooftop solar with the steady flow of interested visitors. It was great to see another local solar group mobilise an enthusiastic team of 7 volunteers. This showed the value of working together to share ideas and resources in the common goal of emissions reduction through rooftop solar. Other local community groups included Clean Energy for Eternity, and Electrify Mackellar, with stalls by local installers and equipment suppliers. Sophie Scamp interviewed Saul Griffith of Rewiring Australia, and John Grimes of the Smart Energy Council for a panel discussion. Both strongly promoted rooftop solar and batteries as the key contribution we can all make to decarbonising the grid, together with getting off fossil gas by fully electrifying our homes.
