Free Information session on
Home Battery Storage for Solar and Wind Power

At 7 pm on Tuesday 14th August 2018
Centacare Meeting Room
21 Torrens Street,  Richmond

Organised by the Coal River Valley Sustainable Living Group. 

Changes in solar power feed-in tariffs at the end of this year mean a drop from a payment of around 28 cents per kW to around 9 cents.  This will have a big impact on power bills. Installing storage batteries may be an economical solution for you so that you can use all your own stored solar electricity rather than sending it to the grid.  There is also a possibility that the scheme on trial on Bruny Island using linked home storage batteries to meet demand during peak usage periods may be extended in some form to the rest of Tasmania.

Come and find out what is happening in battery storage and options for using rooftop solar power. It will help you to decide whether battery storage is a good choice for you.

Please indicate how many people will be attending.

Are you concerned about electric power bills, solar cells and feed in
