Go Solar

Solar rooftop installationSolar pholtovoltaic cells (solar PV) harness the sun's clean energy to reduce our reliance on coal-fired electricity.

 But only 4.1% of Leichhardt dwellings have solar panels. By comparison, six of our eight neighbouring Local Government Areas, have a take-up rate of over 5%

There are many obstacles - awkward roofs, wrong aspect, renting, strata, and heritage constraints. But we think 12% is possible in this area. Reaching that would save close to 6,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year.

 

Meanwhile,  we can bring you

SUNULATOR - a financial calculator to help you predict the costs and returns for PV on your rooftop. It's a downloadable spreadsheet from ATA (the Alternative Technology Association).
