Melbourne solar batteries – the future of renewable energy
Victorians can enjoy power savings day and night by adding a battery. Not only will solar panels and a battery add value to your home, they also help minimize your power bills and make you less reliant on the grid.
Touted as the future of electricity, batteries allow solar power generated during the day to be stored for use at night time or on cloudy days when solar panels cannot generate electricity. In fact, adding a battery to a residential solar system can double the amount of self-generated electricity consumption!
Solar battery rebates are now available in every Victorian postcode
Victorians are buying Electric Vehicles (EVs) at record rates! Are you EV ready?
Did you know that over 50% of Australians intend to purchase an EV in the next 5 years ?

Over 5000 public EV chargers will be rolled out across the country, meaning you will not only be able to charge your car at home, but also on the road as you go. The EV revolution is here!
