New Yackandandah battery and solar offering

New Yackandandah battery and solar offering

Totally Renewable Yackandandah in partnership with Mondo is set to launch a second solar and battery purchasing offer. This will follow hot on the heels of the hugely successful 2017 offering which saw more than 550kW of solar generation added to the Yackandandah area.

Advertising has just begun and people living within 15kms of Yackandandah are invited to attend one of two public information sessions. These sessions will occur at the Yackandandah Public Hall at both 12:00pm and 7:00pm on Wednesday the 5th of September. Light refreshments will be served and information shared about the solar and battery solution.

Local solar installation experts, Solar Integrity will be delivering the program and using equipment consistent with the broader minigrid vision.

More broadly, this second offering addresses Stage Two of TRY renewable energy roadmap – the scaling of battery ready solar installations across the Yackandandah area. At the same time TRY and Mondo are working on;

  • Stage Three: Working to secure financial subsidies for additional batteries across the local network;
  • Stage Four: Finessing plans to launch a community energy retailer to drive the energy sharing future. This retail solution will serve electricity customers right across north east Victoria. More information can be found at: https://www.communityenergyretailer.com/
  • Stage Five: Totally Renewable Yackandandah and Mondo are working on projects to install scaled generation across the region. More detail will be revealed on this in coming months as details firm up.

So in all, some exciting activities are underway as we co-design and unwrap the new look electricity network. Buckle up for the positive transition!
