Region to join in the rooftop revolution

A NEW solar scheme will providediscounted solar systems to households in the region while supporting rural communities in East Timor.

Share Solar,supported by Hepburn Shire Council,will provide 200 discounted solar systemsto residents.

It will also support the‘Light Up East Timor’ program, by donating $100 from every participatingHepburnhome towardssolar lighting to remote villages.

Hepburn Shire councillor Sebastian Kleinsaid the program aligned well with the council’s commitment tosustainability.

“Only10.6 per centof homes in Daylesford currently have rooftop solar and forthe shire as a whole this figure is only 14.4 per cent,” he said.

“The Victorian average is 17 per cent and places likeMelton and Caroline Springs are at 16 per cent – I think we can do better.”

Local sustainability group Sustainable Hepburn AssociationandCastlemaineEnvironment Shop have partnered to offer the scheme.

Castlemaine Environment Shop’s Jane Knight saida bulk-buy would take the stress out of investing in solar.

“We’re hoping that this project will strengthen our communities’participation in the rooftop revolution that is sweeping across Australia,” she said.
