Hello, my name is Freddie and I live in Perth, Australia. Last year, I opened my energy bill and got quite a shock. Even though I try to keep my energy use to a minimum, I still had a bill for several hundred dollars. I was complaining about this to my friend who suggested I look at solar energy. Australia gets a lot of sunshine, so it seemed to make sense. I contacted an energy contractor who came out to my home and installed the equipment. My next energy bill was much lower. I am now looking at installing a small wind farm on my land. I hope you enjoy my blog.

Soil erosion is a characteristic feature of almost every construction site.
