Chris Williams of Cranbourne, Victoria recently had a 1.5kW grid connected solar panel system installed at his home. The system was comprised of German quality Schott solar modules.

Mr Williams felt there were a number of important reasons why he made the decision to purchase a grid solar power system. “Being a pensioner I wanted to keep my energy costs where I am in control. As a grandfather of five, if there is something that I could do about my impact of climate change in Australia then I wanted to be part of it”.

On the issue of Australia’s future impact of climate change, Mr Williams believes that the severity will be moderate. “…only because we have acted positively already”.

Mr Williams also decided to buy green power from his energy retailer after his solar power system was installed, “…when the power mob eventually pull their finger out”.
