Big Solar BBQ in Hackett

By Barcham - 25 March 2013 21

Climate Change Canberra are throwing a Solar BBQ to celebrate 19,000 Canberran homes using solar panels, and to answer questions for anyone still on the fence about making the move to solar power.

The press released doesn’t state whether the barbecue itself will be solar powered, but I hope so because that would be awesome.

Sunday April 7th. 12.00 -3pm
Expert speakers on Solar Energy in Canberra
BBQ, Music
The BBQ will be in the gardens opposite 15 Hackett Gardens, Turner.
Have you got solar panels or are contemplating it?
This is a chance to ask questions about joining the solar future.
All are welcome to hear about the latest progress in solar for Canberrans from speakers including:

Professor Andrew Blakers: Director of the Centre for Sustainable Energy Systems at ANU
Lawrence McIntosh: Co-ordinator of the Canberra Clean Energy who are about to launch a community solar farm that you can co-own.
MC: Caroline LeCouteur
Please bring some food to share [vegetarian preferred]. BBQ equipment provided.
Vegetarian food is available for $5.
RSVP: Valerie 62486873. If you forget to RSVP and just turn up that’s ok too.
Hope to see you there. Please do bring your family and friends.

“Please bring some food to share [vegetarian preferred]. BBQ equipment provided.”

I would expect that the BBQ will be one of those parabolic relector jobies. You can gets smallish ones for a reasonable price, I’m sure someone in the group has knocked up a huge one.

Well I just ordered a 5kw solar system for my place and I’m not even a green lol. I wasn’t thinking of the environment by ordering these I just thought it made sense having a big ball of nuclear fusion in the sky above might as well use it.

I don’t think so, otherwise they wouldn’t hold a big barbecue to promote it. You may wish to re-read the article: it says they are ‘celebrating’ 19 000 Canberran homes using solar. That really doesn’t fit with reducing support.

I think Chewy meant that the vegetarian food may not be a big drawcard… What’s a barbecue without burnt meat and sunburn?

Umm. The release says the BBQ will be opposite 15 Hackett Gardens in Turner, so shouldn’t the headline read “Big solar BBQ in Turner”?

My thoughts exactly. Tofu just ain’t chicken. Or beef. Or lamb. Or anything, really.
