In 2017, 17% of Victoria's power came from renewables, and projects were set in place to help push towards the final target.

Coal in Victoria still is the largest source of energy, even after the shutdown of Hazelwood. While it's widely recognised now that the burning of coal is environmentally unfriendly, it's less well known that a third of Victoria’s water usage is due to coal-fired power plants.

In 2017, the Victorian government negotiated Australia's highest minimum feed-in tariff of 11.3 cents per kWh, though some companies are offering 12 cents. This has made Victoria a perfect place for solar.

The majority of our work is in South East Melbourne and on the Mornington Peninsula. We work with United Energy, which allows 10kW solar systems for residential properties and more for commercial operations. We can help facilitate a smooth transition to solar power.
