September meeting - My Efficient Electric Home
Home energy advisor Tim Forcey describes how you can save money and be comfortable by taking steps to transform your home to "all-electric". Say good-bye to gas by using technologies such as heat pumps and rooftop solar PV. And let’s not forget the latest ideas in insulation, draught-proofing, window treatments and more!
Tim Forcey is a chemical engineer with 35 years of industrial energy experience with entities such as Esso, BHP, Jemena, and the Australian Energy Market Operator. Over the last 10 years and building on Tim’s research at the University of Melbourne Energy Institute, Tim has become one of Australia’s leading home-energy-improvement practitioners and commentators.

This invited presentation is part of our regular monthly meeting. We always try to have the guest speaker early in the meeting, possibly after a general interest computer Q&A session (we are a computer club!). Non-members are welcome to attend 3 club events before joining. The very modest membership fee entitles you to access a number of regional and topic oriented "Special Interest Groups", as well as free computer help through our iHelp service.
