Not happy Jan!

I do strongly recommend to one and all that you hold your local member accountable for lame party policy(s)
Setting a good example to fellow humans is the very best one can do Peter...you set such a good example offering a sensible approach to being responsible for energy generation and lessening your impact on the planet. And I am confident you have influenced many here to think about owning an electric car..you certainly got me thinking..in fact changed my attitude from "it could not work for me" to "my next car will be electric"...I expect I am not the only person to have been influenced by your sensible example.
And now to hear of your hands on involvement is really for me (and hopefully others) inspiring.
Your post fills me with hope.. honestly..and if anything like your influence with the electric car, others may find your example worthy of them doing likewise.
You deserve mention and recognition on Australia Day.

Thanks for sharing your experience.

Ta but I seriously doubt it will ever happen...my frank and fearless approach probably manages to ruffle a few too many feathers. PC I am not.
