Getting off Gas - Ian Rossiter at BGD

Getting off Gas   Ian Rossiter

Green Drinks on 18 August at Lake View Hotel - Ian Rossiter, former BREAZE President, gave a very informative account of what householders can expect when they decide it's time to get off gas.

Ian's talk drew lots of questions for the audience - about the various possibilities re appliances such as space heaters,  induction cooktops, and heat-pumps, along with system size,  the controversial gas-disconnection fee and other cost-related matters.

Clearly this is a shift many of us are wanting want to make – being another win win that not only cuts GHG emissions but also reduces energy bills.

It's a challenge Ian and Chrissie recently embraced at their Buninyong home. You can download Ian's very detailed pdfslides as a pdf here.
