My name is Alastair Wood. We're living in Dereel Victoria, just about 30 minutes, Southwest of Ballarat. We had a quote for running electricity off the grid, it was a very high price, because they would've had to have put in another transformer and it meant digging up a number of eucalypts. Well, first of all, it was the impact of removing a number of native eucalypts down the road. And we wanted to live off the grid as quietly as possible. The installation of the additional panels, the lithium-ion batteries has made a hell of a difference to our lives, really has. It's definitely a win for the environment. It's a win for the hip pocket. The cabling was very, very neat. The installation was very professionally done and it's made a hell of a difference. And they've provided us with quite usable power at all times.
What motivated Alastair to invest in an off-grid solar power system for his home?
