Solar expert Lucy Best will answer residents’ questions about solar and battery storage systems during two free information sessions hosted by Noosa Council and the Australian Energy Foundation.

“There are so many different products on the market and just as many companies offering all sorts of deals so it can be daunting trying to make sense of it all,” Ms Best, from the Australian Energy Foundation, said.

“But a little knowledge can help you choose the best system for your specific needs and avoid the pitfalls.”

The sessions, hosted in partnership with Australian Energy Foundation (AEF), are open to all Noosa Shire residents who are keen to reduce their energy usage and bills.

Ms Best has broad experience helping communities to reduce their energy consumption and save costs. She has overseen energy efficiency and solar-for-schools programs, and programs that provide tenants and apartment building residents with access to solar power. 

Council’s Carbon Reduction Project Officer Annie Nolan said Council was pleased to offer these information sessions to all residents.

“Improving your home’s energy efficiency and installing solar is a great way of reducing your household costs and your carbon footprint. These sessions will help you work through the options, including solar with or without a battery storage solution.”

Both sessions will be held at The J, 60 Noosa Drive, Noosa Junction:

  • Thursday, March 12, 5.30pm - 7.30pm
  • Tuesday, April 21, 5.30pm - 7.30pm

Book online.

In addition to the information sessions, the AEF partnership provides residents with access to free advice and online resources to assist with energy saving options.

It’s all part of Council’s 2026 net-zero emissions goal.
