Luck shines on BP solar winner

CONGRATULATIONS Sally-Anne Ikin, winner of the fabulous 1.8kW fully installed BP solar power system (value $10,800) donated by Self Sufficient Homes - a grand gesture of belief in one's product if ever there was one.

Manager Mark McClurg was keen to get the word out that solar is definitely the way to go and, together with the Advocate, set out to encourage people to think solar. Advocate marketing manager Jodie Crane said the promotion was a huge success.

"The response by people was overwhelming - we were flooded by entries," Ms Crane said.

Other prizes included $1000 worth of LED home lighting and an Efergy meter, which measures household energy consumption.

Mr McClurg said a typical solar system could now pay for itself in under five years but would last decades. For more information, contact Self Sufficient Homes on 6652 2718.
