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.

WORKING FROM HOME WORKS – IT’S TIME FOR THE BUSH TO TELECOMMUTE

WORKING FROM HOME WORKS – IT’S TIME FOR THE BUSH TO TELECOMMUTE

If there is one positive from the COVID-19 pandemic it’s the widespread realisation that working from home works, says Member for Barwon, Roy Butler.

Mr Butler is calling on the NSW Government to review the suitability of all Public Sector positions for telecommuting, and introduce new requirements for Public Sector roles to be advertised as ‘suitable for telecommuting’. 

The way roles are currently advertised, shows a geographic area where the role is based, inhibiting the attraction of the best possible candidate, no matter where they call home.

“COVID-19 has meant more and more people have shifted to working from home, with videoconferencing for team meetings, and remote access tokens bringing the office to people’s dining room tables and study’s.

FRRR NEWSLETTER April 2020

FRRR NEWSLETTER April 2020

I hope that you are reading this in good health and adjusting to our temporary new normal. Rural communities are experts in remote working and living and while we wouldn’t wish for this situation, it has created a window of greater empathy for the daily challenges that distance can present to delivering services and staying connected and well. One might say this is rural Australia’s time to shine, as rural Australia will be a big part of the COVID-19 recovery and I’m looking forward to FRRR supporting locally-led initiatives that will strengthen their vibrancy and prosperity.

Roy Butler MP Member for Barwon

After the year we’re having it’s important to stop and ask yourself and those around you R U OK?

On 10 September as a Nation we come together and ask that question, but it’s important that we keep asking and keep checking in with each other. Times are getting better in Barwon, the crops are looking great and the stock numbers are back on the rise – but never assume that this means mentally everyone’s OK. So ask the question R U OK? and be prepared to stop, listen and provide support.

This past weekend I have been on the road with the Police from the Western Region as part of the 10th Annual Wall to Wall Police Remembrance ride. Every day the members of the NSW Police Force go to work not knowing what to expect, sadly some never come home from their shift. To the Police right across Barwon, stay safe out there and thank you for what you do.

This week I am heading back into Parliament, following the events of last week its sure to be heavy on the politicking.

Check on your strong friends, check on your quiet friends, check on your happy friends, check on each other.

Roy
