Scaling Up Solar On Council Facilities

Between 2017 and 2019, five EAGA members (Knox, Boroondara, Maroondah, Monash, Whitehorse) systematically assessed and prioritised solar and storage opportunities at 53 ‘tier two’ council facilities (outside the EPC project). The project compared and contrasted technology and contracting models, developed template procurement resources and tailored communication materials to assist councils engage with tenants.
