Solar & Battery Storage Info Night

Gippsland Solar will be taking part in a Solar & Battery Storage Information Night hosted by Latrobe City Council on Tuesday August 29, from 7:00 – 9:00pm.

The event will be held at Kernot Hall, 50-70 Princes Drive, Morwell, and will give you the opportunity to hear from industry leaders Selectronic, Tesla and Gippsland Solar.

This event is very timely, with the first shipment of Tesla Powerwall 2 batteries arriving recently in Gippsland and beginning to be rolled out across the region. Topics covered on the night include:

  • The pros and cons of battery storage
  • What does it cost, and what will it save you?
  • The different battery technologies on offer
  • The expected price and technology improvements
  • Examples of existing homes that have installed storage
  • Is it possible to go ‘off the grid’?

The MC for the night will be Darren McCubbin, Chair of the Gippsland Climate Change Network.

This is a FREE event, however we do ask you to register for catering and seating purposes via Eventbrite.


New Tesla charging station – Criterion Hotel, Sale

The Gippsland Solar team are very excited to have installed Sale’s first Tesla Electric Vehicle charging station at the Criterion Hotel. This EV charging station will be powered by the Criterion’s new 30kW solar power system!

Electric Vehicle tourism is on the rise as these vehicles become more affordable, and the Cri Hotel is well placed to capture this market. Their charging station really opens up East Gippsland and the Melbourne-Sydney coastal drive to electric vehicles, encouraging increased visitation and the economic benefits that follow.

Rich in history and grandeur, the Criterion Hotel re-opened its doors in November 2013 after undergoing immense refurbishment to restore the venue to its former glory – much to the delight of locals and travellers-alike, who hold fond memories of the hotel from years gone by. The Cri offers quality accommodation, function spaces and upmarket modern Australian cuisine showcasing the best local produce.

The team at the Cri have been a pleasure to work with, so make sure you pop in for a quality feed and a beverage, and check out their shiny new system.
