Rooftop solar is so popular – slashing energy bill costs, lowering your carbon footprint and paying for itself in around 3 to 6 years. However, for many people, the biggest barrier is access to the right information. The newly-established Metro Community Power Hub (MCPH) can offer independent advice from experienced practitioners, connecting you with trusted suppliers and discounted solar.

Peter Mercouriou, MCPH Manager and experienced solar advisor, will guide us through a discussion on the right kind of setup, what sort of panels, heritage factors, whether a battery should be included, and how the MCPH can help with choosing suppliers and installers. The program only works with carefully vetted installers and offers discounts of up to 20% off. Peter will also touch on the benefits of maximising your solar by moving towards an “all-electric home” by installing efficient electric appliances, which can also be arranged through the MCPH.

As part of Lighter Footprints’ participation as a community partner in the MCPH, we have arranged for Boroondara and surrounds to access the MCPH Solar Program for householders and businesses. Similar programs organised by Yarra Energy Foundation, the MCPH lead organisation, have had resounding success, seeing the installation of over 18,000 solar panels on the rooftops of homes and businesses across greater Melbourne.

Whether you are just starting on your solar journey or at the final stages, this presentation will help you sort through your options and offer you choice and independent advice.
