Are you thinking about installing solar on your property?

Have you worked your way through the five step process to installing solar and still have questions?

Book an appointment with Council staff for a free Solar Conversation about the suitability of your roof!

We’re here to provide impartial, general advice to explain the benefits of solar and help you make an informed decision about whether solar is right for you. We can discuss what options might best suit your needs and what to consider when getting a solar quote.

We are offering free 30-minute conversations on Wednesdays via a phone call, online video call or in-person appointment at Manly Environment Centre.


Please note:

Council staff are not qualified solar engineers, the advice we offer is general solar advice only. If we are unable to answer your query or if you would like to talk to an expert about the more tricky questions, book in here for a free chat with our expert Energy and Solar Advisory Service.

Information you provide through this form will solely be used for the purpose of providing more accurate advice to you during the Solar Conversation. It will not be shared with any third party other than with our contracted expert solar advice partner should we require help in answering your solar question(s). Please refer to Council’s Personal Information Collection Notice and Privacy Policy.
