Cessnock City Council has partnered with the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage to host a workshop that is designed to bust some myths on energy efficiency and solar energy.
The free workshop will be held at Cessnock Library on Thursday, May 17 from 4.30pm to 6.30pm.
Residents are invited to come along and learn how to better understand electricity bills and gain some practical, energy-saving tips to help reduce energy use and overall costs.
Solar panels and battery storage are among the options that will be discussed at the workshop.
Cessnock mayor Bob Pynsent said rooftop solar installations are booming, and more and more people in the Cessnock community are interested in learning more about solar panels.
“This workshop will provide free, independent advice on solar, battery storage and reducing energy use in cost-effective ways,” Cr Pynsent said.
