Wellington Shire Council has partnered with Community Power Hub Latrobe Valley, the Yarra Energy Foundation and other Gippsland councils to bring a solar bulk buy program to the community.
The bulk buying program is open to individual households, businesses, clubs and community groups to purchase respected brands of solar panels, batteries and hot water services.
The program works by purchasing the solar technology in bulk, then using reputable, small local solar contractors for installation. Solar energy has been recognised as an important way of reducing the impact of power prices while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Information sessions will be held at the following locations:
Sale 27 June, Sale Baptist Church 6.30-8.30pm
Yarram 28 June, Yarram Community Hub 6.30-8.30pm
Rosedale 4 July, Rosedale Recreation Reserve 6.30-8.30pm
Stratford 14 July, Stratford Mechanics Hall 9.30am-11.30am
Heyfield 24 July, Heyfield Community Resource Centre, 6.30pm-8.30pm
