Why did you invest in DC Power Co?
To add to my husband and my share portfolio, because I believe in green energy as a means to minimise our fossil fuel use, reduce green-house gas emissions and help to contribute to a stabilisation of global warming (I’m not expecting a reduction).
Do you have solar?
We have solar panels and 2 solar batteries installed in January.
Tell us something not many people know about you…
I love crosswords and word puzzles and sudoku.
Get to know Liz…
Liz has been married for 36 years and has two adult children and one granddaughter. She says she’d love to live off grid but living in the suburbs this isn’t an option. Instead, she and her husband built a Fasham-Johnson solar passive house in 2000, which remains a constant temperature for most of the year.
“Since we got our solar panels and batteries, we only need to run the split system for a couple of hours per day to keep the open plan kitchen, dining and living rooms at a comfortable 19 degrees,” says Liz. “This is usually offset by the solar we have supplied to the grid during the day.”
Liz supports many causes, particularly around environmental issues such as global warming. She and her husband also love nature and grow lots of their own veggies, herbs and lemons, all organic.
“My husband and I think of ourselves as a couple of ‘old hippies’.
“We love nature, go camping (when we’re allowed), walk for miles every day, and love cooking and eating at home. We also love travel, in Australia and the UK and Europe. We had a trip booked for April this year, but had to cancel it. We’re not certain we will ever get there again.”
