Free information sessions on solar energy

Come along to a free information session on solar energy at the Hawkesbury EarthCare Centre in Richmond next week and learn all about how it works and the many benefits it offers to the environment and you.

You will also find out how much it costs and how much money you are likely to save on energy bills as well as hear from independent experts and Hawkesbury locals who will share their experiences with solar.

There will be information stalls and solar displays and wood-fired pizza available for purchase.

Information session dates:
