Presenter: Finn Peacock, Founder of SolarQuotes
Finn is a Chartered Electrical Engineer whose work history includes designing control systems for nuclear power stations and a commercialisation manger with CSIRO’s renewable energy division. He established solarquotes.com.au in 2009. This is a wholly web-based company that provides a broad range of independently-sourced information about solar PV systems. It also allows potential buyers to obtain three local quotations for a system. Since its founding the website has processed around half a million quotations.
Finn will discuss how SolarQuotes began, how it developed and why it works. He’ll also explain the success of operating a company 100% online. This is sustainable both environmentally and commercially and should become commonplace in the 21st century. Finn recently conducted a survey of 1000 owners of residential PV systems to gather feedback about inverter and panel performance. He’ll discuss the findings of that survey.
ATA meetings put people with questions in touch with people who might have answers. The Q&A session is an open discussion about sustainability topics. For example:
•Who can help with an issue?
•What’s on in other parts of Adelaide, SA and Australia?
•Any events you’ve been to and what you’ve learned.
•What presentations or field trips would you’d like?
Minutes of the meeting are here.
