With the Victorian Government preparing to re-open rebates for rooftop solar, it’s an ideal time for people in the Surf Coast to consider being part of the local surge in solar.
From 2016 to 2017, rooftop solar doubled in the Surf Coast while at the end of last year, 3242 homes and businesses had installed solar.
Councillor Martin Duke is part of the Renewable Energy Taskforce, established by Surf Coast Shire Council. The Taskforce has launched the Powered by Positive program, which aims to help locals use less energy and make the switch to solar.
Cr Duke said the Taskforce was pleased to see the uptake of rooftop solar surge in the Surf Coast in recent years.
