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!

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 Tuesdays via a phone call, online video call or in-person appointment at Manly Environment Centre.

With World Environment Day coming up on Sunday 5 June, we are also offering additional times on Monday 6 June.

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, we will either redirect you to our partners at AEF or we will point you in the right direction of who may be best placed to answer your specific questions. 

 Information you provide through this form will solely be used for the purpose of providing more accurate advice and not be shared with any third party (other than AEF as mentioned above). Please refer to Council’s Personal Information Collection Notice and Privacy Policy.
