The numbers are in and they make for very pleasant reading for Port Phillip. We are delighted to announce we have concluded a successful Solar Bulk Buy Program.
We supported 106 residents to install rooftop solar panels to their homes, surpassing our target of 100, and resulting in:
· 374 KW of solar panels installed
· Approximately 490,000 kWh of renewable energy generated annually
· 5.30 tonnes of carbon saved annually (Approximately 10,380 tonnes saved over the life of the panels)
The Program was delivered through the Sustainable City Community Action Plan, which aims to support our community to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, water use and waste.
The City of Port Phillip has a very low rate of roof top solar installations compared to the rest of Australia, this program reduced the up-front cost of installation and provided trusted advice and support to participants.
Planning is currently underway to deliver a 2018/19 Solar Bulk Buy Program focusing on owner’s corporations and businesses.
