Environmentality 26 March 2014, Daniel Ball, EnviroShop

On Environmentality this week we were very grateful  to have Daniel Ball, Photovoltaic Engineer from EnviroShop on the line.  What Daniel doesn't know about solar isn't worth knowing!  Thanks Daniel for joining us.

Listen to the show and hear what Daniel has to say.

We did of course discuss the uptake of solar by more and more Australians.  

The proportion of Australians with solar panels more than doubled in the past three years, from 7.5 per cent in March 2011 to 16 per cent - more than 3 million people - by the end of 2013.

Apart from the information on the EnviroShop website there are a few other sites that offer good information on the ins and and outs of solar systems and how to be more sustainable at your home and businesses take a look at Clean Energy Council and Your Choice

Co presenter, John called in to talk about heat pumps and how they are also worth investigating.  One of the more common ways to use heat pumps is to heat water. Air-sourced heat pump water heaters absorb heat from the outside air and transfer it to heat a connected tank of water.  They work on the same principle as a refrigerator-but instead of pumping heat out of a refrigerator to keep it cool, they pump heat from the air into water.  The Australian Government Department of Industry site has much more detailed information for those that are interested!

Don't forget to turn off for Earth Hour this Saturday 29 March at 8:30pm.
