Off-grid energy, here to stay!

I saw the most amazing thing! An advert on TV, a solar company offering an off-grid power system. Wow! My main topic of conversation is stand alone power and now finally a company who is being pro active. Yes!

Do you know what this means? The word is out, now we can go off-grid and produce our own power. Say bye-bye to the power companies and high prices. Say hello to renewable energy and a fixed price.

491687765_485As you can see anyone in Australia can access off-grid energy. All that’s required is your own property, home or business. Once you pay your set up cost there is very little to pay in terms of maintenance.

Give Standard Solar a call 1800 636 636. They will get you off the power grid and onto a better way, a more sustainable way.

Produce power via renewables not fossil fuels.

I hope this info helps. Go green Australia!

Time to choose.

It’s time Australia. Time to think about how your power is produced. At the moment we burn fossil fuels but that’s not sustainable. Most people would agree renewable energy sources are the way to go.

Do we want to pay the man whatever he says? What about cutting out the middle man and paying no power bills ever!

There is a whole new system available, there are no power bills to pay and all energy is totally renewable. Cheaper than paying for grid connected power, stand alone power is the way to go.

stand alone power! Thanks sun & wind! Don't forget Sungel batteries!

Take charge! Don’t wait for the government or someone else to sort it for you. You can get off the grid today! There are plenty of companies to install stand alone power such as Enviroshop 1300 30 58 33 or Rainbow Power Company 02 6689 1430 look them up online. The cost $30,000 for an average 3 bedroom home. No matter what you have heard in terms of cost I got this figure from the companies doing the work.

Now you know how to get off-grid power use that knowledge, please.

Go Green Australia!

Down with power lines!

We have enough reasons why Australia burns in the summer. Why do we accept improperly maintained power lines as one of those causes? Does anyone remember the Kilmore East fireball, dubbed Black Saturday? On the 7th of February 2009 lives lost 119. Who was responsible SP AusNet a Singapore owned electricity company.

We lost an iconic Australian that day in Brian Naylor. Our much-loved channel nine news reader Brian Naylor and his beloved wife gone in the most horrific way. 119 lives lost entire families gone, what about the people left behind. How can the people responsible possibly live with themselves, all that loss of life.

The power line in question one of the longest in Victoria was 43 years old with damage from a previous lightning strike. This made it susceptible to wind stress which in turn caused its failure. The resulting fire went on to destroy the communities of Kinglake, Steels Creek, Strathewen, Chum Creek and Flowerdale.

The bottom line is if you have an old, very long line with previous damage and you wait for it to fail expect to be held liable for damage caused. This was Victoria’s biggest civil class action involving 10,500 claimants. SP AusNet settled for $19 million. Cold comfort for the family members left behind.

We don’t have to let this happen again, we can eliminate the need for power lines. Stand alone power (off-grid power) is the answer.

stand alone power! Thanks sun & wind! Don't forget Sungel batteries!

Stand alone power means you produce the power you use. It cuts out the middle man, no more power bills. Not a power line in sight.

Some companies to tell you all about it: Enviroshop…….1300 30 58 33  Rainbow Power Company…….02 6689 1430  Off-grid Energy Australia…..1300 334 839      If you want to find a company near you look online (stand alone power) too easy.

Now you may be thinking if it’s that easy why isn’t everyone doing it. Although I’m doing my best to shout about it, this information is largely unheard of. Even some people I’ve spoken to related to that industry are not aware of the current advances. Stand alone power works and works well, the cost to maintain the system decreases over time. No one in the fossil fuel burning industry can offer you that.

It’s time to stand up for stand alone power! If you own your own property in Australia I urge you to get off the power grid. Go green Australia! (Michelle Simpson -stand alone power advocate-)
