Join us on the verandah at the Australian Hotel Gympie for a conversation with Murray Keys from the Gympie Community Solar Association.
Murray had a long and successful career in forest science research and is now the president of the Gympie Community Solar Association which helps people assess their power bills and work out the cost-benefit analysis of fitting solar power systems to their homes. They are a not for profit group.
Murray has a particular interest in mitigating climate change as he has observed the effects on our environment and seen first hand the issues it is causing in the Pacific and Asia where a lot of forest research projects are managed as joint projects with state and federal government.
