A little less conversation - Labor commitments deliver a lot more action for a more sustainable WA.

Labor's strong support for a broad range of green energy outcomes provides a clear choice for a more sustainable Western Australia states the WA Sustainable Energy Association Inc. Tomorrow, WA SEA will release a comparison of significant election commitments of major parties in the WA election.

Labor's strong commitment to diverse green energy outcomes is a long way ahead of undertakings announced by the Liberal Party today, and provides a clear choice for those planning to vote for a more sustainable Western Australia states the WA Sustainable Energy Association Inc. (WA SEA), WA's business chamber for sustainable energy industries.


"While we welcome Liberal commitments today to deliver a feed in tariff on renewable energy for domestic customers and also to improve public transport, the announcement today included in the Liberal's environment platform fails to match Labor's broad election commitments to sustainable energy," says Dr Ray Wills, Chief Executive of WA SEA.

"Ramping up use of Western Australia's massive renewable energy resources will actually diversify the economy and create a more robust environment for business."

"Building our renewable energy base improves energy supply diversity and thus security, provide new opportunities for business and employment, and grow WA's industry base - these are all good business outcomes and will help build a more sustainable economy."

"Labor have provided a broad raft of measures that will help deliver a more sustainable economy for all Western Australians," says Dr Wills.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
