Around 80 people attended three public meetings held in mid July to inform residents about the Swan Hill council supported Mallee Sun Solar Bulk Buy. Sessions were held on three consecutive evenings on 16, 17 and 18 July in Swan Hill and Robinvale.
Swan Hill Rural City Council Mayor Ann Young opened one of the meetings in Swan Hill. Cr Les McPhee opened another, also at the Town Hall.
“We were delighted with the strong levels of interest from residents across the Swan Hill municipality,” said Mallee Sun Solar Bulk Buy organiser Jo Kaptein. “People attending these sessions were interested in solar for their homes, as well as several considering solar – and battery storage – for their farm or other business.
“In Robinvale, in particular, we had interest from people with large agricultural businesses looking at systems at around the 100kW in size, as well as batteries. We’re able to supply this type of system, as well as solar for homes.
“We will be announcing further info meetings in the Swan Hill region shortly.”
