Solar for Yarra Businesses is taking off

The Yarra Energy Foundation officially launched our Commercial Solar program in June 2014. Since then we have performed a feasibility analysis on the installation of solar PV for over 50 local businesses of all shapes and sizes.


We have now facilitated the first five commercial solar installations with businesses in the municipality through our program.

While this is just a drop in the ocean, we know that we are heading in the right direction and looking forward to facilitating many more solar panels being installed on business roofs throughout Yarra in 2015  

Just before Christmas we particularly enjoyed helping IKEA Richmond launch their 700 kW system, the largest commercial system in Victoria at the time of install. The Yarra Energy Foundation team was joined by the City of Yarra sustainability team, Councillors Gaylard and Colanzi, and Mayor Vlahogiannis and staff from IKEA Richmond.
