The Alternative '96
The weekend of the 13th & 14th of April saw us braving the first taste of winter at the Albury show grounds. The occasion was the second expo designed to showcase a wide range of alternative products and services.
With help from David Bates of SUNRAZ in Echuca and Going Solar of Melbourne we had a comprehensive, working display of solar power, hot water and pumping. It was very pleasing to see that despite the poor weather (the sun shone for about 3 hours) we were still able to demonstrate the effectiveness of solar energy. Dave's MONO pump kept on pumping except in the worst of conditions: when it was actually raining. And we had sufficient solar energy to power our display unit and show people what solar power could do.
The cloudy weather and rain didn't stop people from far and wide from coming along to get some information and have a good look around. We noticed a few familiar faces among the crowds and were pleased to be able to catch up with a few of you.
