I grew up on a Multiple Occupancy in the bush, in the beautiful hills that surround Nimbin village. The property we lived on, while close to town as the crow flies, was made remote by twelve kilometres of rough bush track and winding, corrugated dirt road. The nearest mains power connection was over three Ks away, and the steep, forested terrain meant that to connect mains power to the property would cost many tens of thousands of dollars, even in the late 1970s when the community formed.

You've heard the renewables naysayers happily espouse coal and coal seam gas (or nuclear power!) when they speak of rubbish tips around the world filling up with unwanted solar panels
The heart of each photovoltaic installation contains a PV inverter. It transforms the energy collected by the solar panels into usable electricity.
So you have made the decision to power your tiny home with the sun? Congratulations! Solar power is now the cheapest most abundant energy source in the world.
Have you thought about upgrading your business to solar? A well designed commercial solar system may have a ROI of as low as 2 years.

At last week's student strike I was asked to speak about how renewable energy and RPC can help people take action to solve the climate crisis.
As recently put by a well read commentator, we live in the Age of Mumpsimus, that is, an age characterised by clinging to traditional customs or notions although shown to be unreasonable.
