Cool but sunny. A perfect day to show off two solar installations in Manly. Many thanks to generous householders John and Dof, who welcomed people to their homes and answered all the questions about batteries, solar panels, renewable energy and reducing your carbon emissions.

How much did it cost to install solar panels? What do they look like? How much space does a battery take up? How long did it take to install? What are your bills like? Did you get a solar rebate? Would you recommend your installers? Would you do anything differently? And how do I get that amazing app?

Thank you to all the people who came visiting and we hope you found it useful. Hopefully this can be the first of many Solar Open Days. And if you’ve got rooftop solar and would like to demonstrate it, let us know.
