Solar panel and battery savings in store

IF you’ve been waiting for a good time to put solar panels on your home, then wait no longer.

The Home Energy Bulk Buy is offering discounted solar panels and batteries from December, including installation, to people living in southern Tasmania.

Discounts can increase with the number of people participating in the bulk buy.

The bulk buy of insulation and down-lights, held last month, achieved 25 per cent off normal prices.

Through the Southern Tasmanian Councils Authority, the City of Hobart and other local governments have teamed up with Sustainable Living Tasmania to offer the Home Energy Bulk Buy program.

By coordinating bulk buys on energy efficient appliances, the project gets more people saving energy and money.

The solar panel and battery buy opens in December and a bulk buy of efficient hot water systems will open in February.
