Talks to help residents become energy efficient
Umina Community Group is holding a series of three free talks on Wednesday, February 21, to help local residents become energy efficient to save money and reduce emissions.
Project leader Mr Sean Richardson said: "While many people's first thought is going solar, it is not possible for everyone.
"There is so much information that it is not easy to find out where to start or you become overwhelmed and miss opportunities.
"We have planned the talks to be informative and help people take action that suits their circumstances."
Mr Richardson said: "People's situations are different whether that be their financial arrangements, or their living arrangements where they may be renting, in a strata development or in a standalone house or small business, which all need different approaches.
"People who are building or thinking of renovating could find it is easier to build in energy efficiency from the start and be ready to take advantage of the renewable energy that is being increasingly supplied into the energy system, rather than retrofitting and making more expensive changes years down the track.
"There will also be information to help people become aware of various government grants and schemes they might be able to use in their home or business to help with some of the costs to becoming more energy efficient."
The talks are organised by Umina Community Group, in partnership with Peninsula Environment Group, Patonga Progress Association and Van Holland energy assessors.
The talks start at 7pm at Umina Surf Life Saving club and seating is limited.
