In South Australia’s Mid-North region; people are increasingly considering switching their homes and farms to solar power. 
 
Residents from throughout the Mid North gathered at Blyth Cinema last Tuesday night to gain further information on the topic and to ask questions about solar energy systems.
 
The Blyth Cinema was filled to capacity for the information session hosted by the Blyth Development Board. Speaking at the meeting were Troy Harris and Colin Lord of national solar power company Energy Matters. Energy Matters has had a presence in the Blyth and Clare area for many years, having performed many local installations.
 
Attendees learned of the advantages of installing grid connect and off grid solar power systems, the components involved and how the systems are installed, plus financial incentives through feed in tariffs, government rebates and discounts available to solar buyers groups through Energy Matters. The team from Energy Matters also answered many questions from people during the two hour session.
 
As a result of the meeting, a Solar Panel Working Party was established to co-ordinate a Mid North solar buyers group. Dozens of households have expressed an interest in acquiring a solar power system through the discounts that will be available through the power of bulk purchasing. 
 
Home owners, businesses and farmers in South Australia’s Mid North region interested in being added to the buyers group list should contact group co-ordinator Ian Roberts on  8844 5175 for further details.
