The Renewable Energy Expo in Narooma on Saturday, November 25 is creating a buzz among householders and local businesses wanting to save on power bills and be more environmentally sustainable.
“So much is happening in renewable energy and battery development at the moment,” expo coordinator Frank Eden said. “People are keen to get the latest information and talk with suppliers and experts about the way ahead.
“They want to find out how to save on power bills, be more environmentally sustainable, and about future investment opportunities.”
Last year’s expo was such a success with exhibitors and visitors coming from across south-eastern NSW and Canberra, that Narooma Rotary has built on that experience for this year’s event. It is a Narooma Rotary community project.
Mr Eden said he was delighted with the response from both exhibitors and sponsors. Narooma Public School students will be there with their case study of reducing playground litter.
“We’re expecting about 20 exhibitors at the Expo in the Narooma Sport and Leisure Centre,” he said.
“They include solar panel and solar hot water suppliers, battery suppliers, independent advisors on solar panel technologies and cutting costs and reducing emissions, sustainable housing, advisors on investing in solar farms, and we hope some electric cars and battery operated tools like chainsaws.”
The Renewable Energy Expo at the leisure centre runs from 10am to 4pm with the official opening by Member for Eden Monaro Dr Mike Kelly at 10.30am.
Saturday night’s Expo Forum at Club Narooma starts at 7.00pm. Entry is free and it features three speakers, all leaders in their field. They are:
A panel discussion will follow with a wide range of experts. An Expo dinner at 6pm will precede the forum. Bookings essential via the website. More information at expo.naroomarotary.org.au
