From the counterculture of the 60s and 70s that came before Gen X and even missed the mark for a few Baby Boomers – hippies are back in a major way.
Growing up in a time defined by recessions, housing bubbles, inflation and a growing cost of living… It isn’t hard to see why the stereotypes of penny-pinching uni students or part-time retail workers have drawn comparisons to the past.
South Australia is the most expensive state in the nation for electricity and even the hippies of today, in rental homes and eating noodles out of cups, are well aware that pushing their parents to make the move could help to grow inheritance.
As the scientific consensus makes solar panels inevitable in an age of school strikes, protests and unrest over the future of the Earth, Millennials and Gen Z share a dream of homeownership… Solar panels are for them what the white picket fence was for their parents.
1079 Life’s Solar-la-la-la competition aims to help the thrift-shopping carbon-neutral kids of today, by letting them invest in their future through… Singing?!
1079 Life encourages the modern hippy movement to register on the website and prepare to sing the rest of the lyric when they’re called on air, in order to win an Exceed Solar Panel Package and installation valued at up to $4999.
The only question left to ask yourself is, are you groovy enough?
