Solar power to pay for RTA installed AC
If any of you are wondering what your electric bill will be now that you've got your RTA supplied AC so that you can keep the windows closed and keep the sound of their badly built road out, then this story from Tony might give you some ideas.
Sorry I missed your meeting last Thursday but the change of date conflicted with my Brunswick Valley Rescue Squad general meeting which was at the same time.
Aha !, I now see that its " Solar Powered Ventilation Systems " being offered, not bad considering that I was the one that told the RTA that air conditioning without the power to run it was as costly as being given a "car without the petrol" when in fact I did not need the car without the problems they caused, well, when I inquired why it was taking so long to get an answer it was reported back to because I had put " the cat amongst the pigeons " and believe it or not my request had go to the ministry head in Sydney not just to the yahoos in Grafton for approval as they were not empowered to accept the Solar Power costs to drive the Air Conditioner as that would set a precedent.
It took two months to get an anwer to that " Cat " but it did finally come, that it was understood that the Air Conditioner or fans that push air use more power than ones immagine and would soon outweigh the costs of the actual unit.
So now you can come and view my 1.2 KW solar panel system which was installed yesterday.
The system sleeps at night ( the " Happy Face " closes its eyes ) and in the morning ( the " Happy Face " opens its eyes ) and start to generate power which is fed to a new digital reversable meter installed with the system that feed the power back to the grid No battery banks needed.
So we may not get the road asphalt YET as I knew from the meetings that they were going to whitewash anything we said as a group at the meetings but I was not going to let them get away with the solar power when arguing on a one to one basis.
So if you need to get something done on a one to one basis with the RTA, use the Baggio "Dobberman" Principle
" Sink your teeth in and don't let go untill the required results are obtained " provided the results required are reasonable and feasible
