THE ‘Making the Switch’ expo will be held in Sale later this month, to share how transitioning from gas to electricity can benefit your back pocket and the environment.

Hosted by Wellington Shire Council and Gippsland Climate Change Network (GCCN), the event will give householders practical insights on lowering energy consumption through draught proofing, window coverings and swapping to energy-efficient appliances.

The expo will also spotlight solar power, demonstrating how solar panel installation can significantly reduce reliance on traditional energy sources.

There will be electric vehicles (EVs) on display, with owners on hand to share their experiences and the economic benefits, and local solar suppliers will share information on installation and government rebates.

GCCN Chair and Wellington Shire Councillor, Carolyn Crossley encouraged people to go along to learn how to take advantage of government financial support to make the switch.

“It’s good for the pocket and best of all, it’s good for your family’s health and the environment,” Cr Crossley said.

Making the Switch will be held at Nakunbalook Environmental and Cultural Education Centre in Sale, adjacent to Seed Community Garden, on Sunday, February 25 from 10am until 1pm.

Entry is free, but people are encouraged to register by searching for ‘Making the Switch’ on
