Solar Still Makes Sense in 2020

Solar Still Makes Sense in 2020

Solar Energy in Australia has been a story of significant growth over the decade. Since 2009 cumulative capacity of Solar in Australia has grown from nearly zero to 18,583,305 KWs in June 2020 (as per the Australian PV Institute). To put that into context that is enough power to run an off the shelf light bulb for around 371,666,100 hours. But, is it still worth it to by Solar for your home or Business in 2020?

Hot Kitchen Trends This Year

The kitchen is considered the heart of every home. With everyone forced to stay indoors to slow down the spread of COVID-19, kitchens are seeing more traffic than any place in the house.  In addition to preparing meals, most people prefer to eat, talk, and even work at the kitchen table, a reason you might want to consider a kitchen renovation. Depending on the condition of your kitchen, a few simple upgrades should give it a fresh new look and improved functionality.

Wild Horse signs now on Pillaga Road.

Wild Horse signs now on Pillaga Road.

North West Local Land Services in conjunction with Narrabri Shire Council have had wild horse caution signs installed along the Wee Waa to Pilliga road to warn motorists of the potential hazard of collisions with wild horses in the area.

Wild horses are listed as a priority species in the North West Local Land Services region. The erection of these signs comes after reports from locals who have described near miss situations along this stretch of road. There is a known population in this area and they pose a hazard for all motorists, particularly those unfamiliar with the area.

Senior Biosecurity Officer, John Busby emphasised the importance of having this awareness for motorists, as a collision could be fatal. He said “Times to be most cautious are early morning and late evening when there is reduced visibility, however, horses can be out at all times of the day or night.”

Roy’s Roundup

Roy’s Roundup

Hi Folks, 

A belated Happy Easter! I hope you all got some time with family or friends, and spent time doing things that brings you happiness and contentment. 

The floods in Sydney, Moree and the Coast have been devastating. There is no getting away from the property damage and economic cost of this incident. The good news for us is that rainfall in our own catchment and flows out of Queensland should see some of the best river flows in years. Well over 500GL should hit Menindee, it’s my priority that water is retained in Menindee to protect the lower Darling for as long as possible. I have asked the Minister to review the 480GL/640GL rule that transfers control of Menindee Lakes to the Murray Darling Basin Authority (MDBA) when storage is over 640GL. These discussions are ongoing.
