Staff Profile – Greg Potter

Program Support – Positive Charge

My role is to support the Positive Charge program by handling inbound queries, looking after aspects of our social media presence, assisting project leads and other staff with a range of tasks, and generally contributing to the running of the office.  My professional background includes 20 years in a range of customer service and technical support roles.

I’ve long been an advocate for solar energy and combating the effects of anthropogenic climate change in my personal circles – I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to do so on behalf of Positive Charge / MEFL.

The best piece of sustainability advice I ever got is:  heat your house to 18 degrees, and cool it to 26.  These temperatures are comfortable, put far less strain on the electricity grid than setting electric heaters and aircons to max, and you conserve energy generally.  Of course, having solar can remove those concerns!

When I’m not working I’m usually… coaxing diverse sounds from my collection of synthesizers and musical kit, and occasionally doing so on stage.  Once my family duties have been met, of course.

The thing I love most about Moreland is… the green spaces.  The lake, the creeks, the bike trails.  And the band night at the Coburg RSL.

A thought that I can’t shake off is… that there are no jobs on a dead planet.
