NSW Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) and the Bega Valley Shire Council hosted a free ‘Demystifying Solar’ seminar for businesses and households at the Eden Fishermen's Recreation Club on Wednesday afternoon.

Attended by about 30 people, the seminar explained in plain-English the different types of solar technology available and the trends in solar power use in Australia and around the world.

OEH presenter Lisa Miller gave the audience a good amount of background material and spoke about the key factors that should influence any decision to invest in solar energy whether for residential or business purposes.

Mark Fleming from OEH said the goal was to make people comfortable to ask questions and leave with a much clearer understanding as to whether solar was right for them.
