Solar News Update

By Chris Le Breton, Solar Project Manager (Volunteer), BRCT


The Blueskin Solar Syndicate now has nearly 40 households signed up!

We have received back responses to our call for tender (December 2012) to supply (i) solar photo-voltaic equipment and (ii) solar water-heating [thermal] equipment to the solar syndicate members.

A small group of us is considering the finer details of each offer to make recommendations to the first meeting of the solar syndicate on Tuesday February 4 at 7.30pm at Waitati Hall. (Members only, please RSVP)

It looks at the moment as if there are three broad options to consider: (i) A community solution; (ii) Installing and operating via a new social enterprise; or (iii) Installing independent units.

It isn't too late to join the Blueskin Solar Syndicate either! Another 10 people would bring us to close to 50 households, beating down average prices further! Email Chris@solar@blueskinpower.co.nz if you wish to join the Blueskin Solar Syndicate.
