SOLAR ELECTRICAL POWER for PITTWATER OFFSHORE COMMUNITY
Information and Special Offer
The Offshore Community, through its representatives, has worked with Pittwater Council and a number of other residents from the mainland over a number of years to develop the Pittwater 2020 Strategic Plan and its Vision.
A key part of the Plan is for Pittwater to work towards 'Sustainability'. One of the strategies is 'Energy Efficiency'.
The Energy Efficiency Strategy (EES) contains a number of very important objectives, including - to 'educate the community and encourage it to use and produce clean power and to reduce energy consumption'.
It also includes some important Strategic Initiatives, including & 'to support and facilitate the development of residents renewable electricity co-operatives'.
The Pittwater Offshore Vision Group has been developing an important initiative, along with local resident and solar power exponent Bill Holland (recently awarded 'Green Hero' for the Australia Wide Green Awards). Bill has driven Pittwater High School's program to generate enough Solar Photo Voltaic electricity to power the school's energy needs.
SPECIAL SOLAR POWER OFFER
With his considerable experience and success with the Pittwater High School program, and his excellent industry contacts, Bill Holland has arranged a high quality package, at a very good price.
The package includes & BP or Schott high quality solar panels, power inverter, complete installation, Certificate of Compliance of Electrical Works (COCEW), and electrical connection & all with an excellent warranty - ready to go.
Special prices are:- 1Kw ($4,500), 2 Kw ($13,000), 3 Kw ($21,000)
These prices are net after applying the $8000 rebate (see 'Limitation' below). Each package also includes the donation of one PV panel to Pittwater High School (can vary a little depending on the value of the Renewable Energy Certificates on the day).
We have agreed to provide transport of the modules, installers etc across to the houses as required.
For any householder at all interested in having their own high quality Solar Electrical Power, this is a very good deal.
To get things started, AWS is offering a free onsite assessment of your home to ensure that you have sufficient sunlight to generate power efficiently.
Benefits of Installing a Solar Electrical Power System Now
This package is only appropriate to houses that can demonstrate the availability of adequate sun to make the system viable and, to this end, all interested home owners will receive an on site assessment and report (referred to above) & there is no charge for this.
The other limitation is that the $8000 rebate now applies only to householders with a taxable income of $100,000 or less. There is now NO REBATE for householders who have incomes of over $100,000. Hopefully the Government will realise that this is a serious backward step and will reinstate the rebate for all income groups.
It is necessary for homes to have a modern electricity meter. If you don't have one of these meters, please check with Energy Australia (131367) to confirm that the 'Time of Use' meter is available at no charge, and then order one. There is about a 1 month delivery, so it would be advisable to order as soon as possible.
Part of this program will involve participating households in auditing their power usage and looking at ways to reduce their energy consumption. More information will be provided later on this.
