Make an Impact Hero - Andrew Hibbs, Kwinana Refinery
 
Andrew Hibbs, a fitter from Kwinana, is doing his part for the environment by getting around town on his Vectrix motorbike.
 
A Vectrix is a 100% electric motorbike that has a top speed of 100km an hour and recharges in less than 2 hours.
 
Andrew travels approximately 250 kilometres a week, on his Vectrix motorbike, which would cost an average person 85 cents per week.
But Andrew doesn’t face this cost, as he has fitted his house with 20 solar panels, each making 215 watts – running his entire house, powering his bike and putting power back into the grid.
 
“There’s no reason why 80 per cent of Australia shouldn’t be riding a Vectrix. It’s cheaper than public transport and uses $45 a year of power,” Andrew said.
