With electricity rates rising, rooftop solar panels are becoming more popular as an insurance policy against rising costs. Have you ever thought about installing solar panels on your or your strata’s property? It is possible, but there can be a lot of hurdles to jump through. Take advantage of this opportunity to get ahead and make up your mind if solar is worth it in Strata.

Committees want to be confident their decisions and systems are beneficial for all Lot Owners, so they can be sure of outcomes that are the best possible, for this, they need an independent third-party that understands the complexities of the scheme and who can provide guidance and advice.

This week we are eager to announce our Solar Expert panellist who will speak at our upcoming education seminars across North Queensland. Viability and the approval process is an area of increasing interest due to ever rising energy costs. Come along to hear about viability considerations for the community and individual owner installs including approval requirements needed for the varying location and supply types.
