Merry Christmas to all!

santa logo Merry Christmas to all!









A Merry Christmas to all and take care over the festive season. Energy Farm will be taking its own break too a few days before the new year through to the 7th of January. During this time we will still be answering phones and responding to email but it may be a little slower until we are fully back on board on the 10th of January.

I hope you all manage to have at least a few days off and wish you all the best in the New Year.

All the best.

Solar power boat to travel the world.

solar boat01 Solar power boat to travel the world.

Here at Energy Farm we pretty much like trying to power anything with solar power.  Of course residential houses and business are our main area of of interest but our staff like to try their hand to running other things. We have solar powered hats, kids toys, water pumping systems, radios and iphone charges. But none of us have a solar powered boat. But after seeing this we know we want one!

Solar power plan without a carbon price is too good to be true

Carbon pricing is all too hard when the economy is the way it is.  That is something Obama has found out the hard way. All people see it what affects them directly and at this time in the United States this is stability and jobs. So carbon trading takes a back seat. In Australia amazingly the same thing may happen using America as an excuse for sitting back and doing nothing. Still solar in Western Australia will continue with its strong momentum while we still have up front RECS discounts as well as a decent feed-in tariff. Get it while you can!

Too generous? The NSW Solar Bonus Scheme takes a dive

A disappointing result for NSW and solar renewable energy but was the writing on the wall? The NSW gross feed tariff in was higher than Western Australia’s net feed tariff which does beg questions as to how long it could last. The sad answer is not very long and all. Whats worse is how the pendulum has shifted from what extreme to the other which could cause what the media have named a boom bust cycle within the renewable energy sector. In the short them there is likely to be some bitterness towards those that managed to lock into the scheme from people who just missed out. The potential result is to place blame on solar and maybe even some bitterness towards renewable energy in general. What is really suggests is there needs to be communication between state government and a long overdue plan for renewable energy into the future for Australia.
