Cuppa Sunshine | 9am, Friday, 22 August 2014
Solar supporters gather at Australian Conservation Foundation’s 60L Green Building to send a message to Canberra
Going Solar, an award-winning solar installer based in Melbourne, together with Australian Conservation Foundation, are hosting Cuppa Sunshine Morning Tea on Friday 22 August to celebrate solar in Australia and send a strong message to Canberra to protect the Renewable Energy Target.
The event will also launch Australian Conservation Foundation’s new 15kW solar installation on the roof of the 60L Green Building, recently installed by Going Solar.
When: 9am Friday 22 August 2014
Where: Large meeting room ACF’s 60L Building (rear ground floor),
60 Leicester St, Carlton 3053
What: Morning tea and casual open forum, writing a letter to our cross bench & federal senators about solar power
As an industry veteran of 36-years and Principal of Going Solar, Stephen Ingrouille wants to continue helping Victorians reduce their electricity bills. During his time in the industry, Stephen has experienced first-hand the ups and downs of various changes in government policy and Feed-in Tariffs. Now more than ever, we need to support continued investment in solar projects and to support the 24,000 solar jobs all over Australia!
Cuppa Sunshine is an initiative of Solar Citizens, an independent, community-based organisation bringing together millions of solar owners and supporters to grow and protect solar in Australia. With over 5 million Australians living under a solar roof, solar just makes sense!
For one week in August, thousands of people will gather all around Australia to put ol’ fashioned pen to paper and show our cross bench senators just how deeply Australians care about a strong solar future. There’s no question that the future of solar in Australia hangs in the balance. It’s up to us to make sure the senate stays strong and protects the most important policy for solar in Australia, the Renewable Energy Target.
To kick off proceedings, Stephen will make a short presentation about Australian Conservation Foundation’s new 15kW solar installation on the 60L roof, powered by Winaico solar panels and a state of the art Enphase Microinverter System. Over the years, Going Solar has been recognised with several awards for excellence and leadership in domestic and commercial-scale solar PV installations and they say it wouldn’t have been possible without the RET!
