Hi Graham,

Sorry, I don't have the figures. I would think that a solar power plant in each city and town would be better than a massive centralised plant. This would have the benefit of reducing the maze of powerlines that criss-cross our country at present, which kill many birds, especially Black-necked Storks, Brolgas, Black Swans, Australian Pelicans and ibis. Every house or commercial building could support a panel or two. Some solar powered houses are presently transferring their excess power back into the grid. It is not pie in the sky and the technology has advanced greatly in recent years.

Re. cutting back on our demand for power, I appreciate that it is like pushing a snowball uphill but we have to set an example and I do believe in the power of one. We may not be able to change people's attitudes but we certainly won't if we don't try.
