Human-sized bees will descend upon the Nectr stand (John Reid Pavilion) at this year’s Ekka (Royal Queensland Show) (6 - 14 August) to help Aussies find affordable ways to ‘future-proof’ their energy consumption with cleaner, greener energy.


At the Nectr stand, in addition to meeting life-size bees, showgoers can also learn about how Nectr’s Solar and Battery system bundles can reduce their household’s reliance on the energy grid. Nectr is also offering showgoers an amazing discount of up to $1,200 off the cost of their system if they request a quote during the 9 days and then proceed to installation.


The Nectr stand at the Ekka will feature:


●           Educational information - Tips on saving energy at home, what being ‘carbon neutral’ really means, how households - and the planet - can benefit from cleaner, greener energy.

●           Interactive solar calculator - By inputting their home address, showgoers can use the technology to see the potential energy savings achieved by adding solar and view a layout of solar panels on their roof before purchase.

●           Kid’s Retreat - Kids will take flight in a Bee Simulator PlayStation game while also learning about the environmental role of bees.


Nectr Chief Marketing Officer, Karren Challoner-Miles, encourages those considering new energy options to visit the Nectr stand at the Ekka to find out how to reduce their energy bills and start their journey to energy independence.


“We understand that the recent spikes in prices have made Australians question their household energy sources and costs, and what new energy options like solar and battery can offer,” said Karren.


“Installing solar panels is the first step to sustainable living. Nectr’s new bundles can help homeowners at all stages of the energy independence journey - whether starting with solar panel installation or installing a household battery for less reliance on the grid. With no upfront costs, the move to renewable forms of energy has never been more affordable.


"We are looking forward to talking to Ekka visitors this year about their individual energy needs, and different solutions to reduce bills in the short and long term.”
