My Advice About Green Energy

Welcome to the blog! My name is Ian. I live with my wonderful family in Sydney, Australia. For many years, I believed that green energy was something that old hippies were into. However, having read a detailed news report about climate change, I realised that green energy was something we all needed to consider. I contacted a local solar energy company and asked them for advice. They gave me lots of very useful info and I eventually decided to install two solar panels on my home. I am really pleased to be doing my bit to protect the environment. Enjoy!
