Learn about solar power
One of the ways you can help make Adelaide carbon neutral is to choose solar power for your home. There is a well established solar industry in South Australia, and installers who can estimate savings based on your electricity bills. Choosing accredited Greenpower is an option for those that rent or don't have a suitable roof and it means your electricity bill payments are helping to develop the renewable electricity sector.
