The Tindo bus

So, it appears that Adelaide is leading the way with solar powered public transport.  I’ll never make jokes about it being sleepy hollow again.

The Tindo bus is the world’s first solar powered 45-seater, getting it’s charge from panels on the roof of the Adelaide bus depot.  With a range of 200 kilometres, it also carries a small ‘fast-charge’ unit in case it’s running out of juice while taking the tourists to Glenelg.

Now that the South Australian’s have achieved carbon neutral public transport, when do we start seeing them on the road here in Melbourne?

 

TOGSH Open Day

Apologies for radio silence, it’s been a (very) extended break over the Christmas period.  Now back to it…

What better way than to throw the doors open and welcome viewers as part of Wyndham Council’s Green Living Series?  If you’re in the area, pop down between 10am and 2pm on Sunday 15th February if you’re interested in having a look-see.

Of course it’s free to come along (donations of succulents for the garden always welcome!) buy you do have to register through the good people at council here.

See you then!
