We have delivered solar projects worth millions of dollars, from helping individuals at home, through to complex solar roll-outs across diverse building types.
We are even helping whole communities go 100% renewable
On projects Big or small, Our Process is Simple:
1) We understand your energy goals, and if you need, we help you define them.

3) We Analyse scenarios until we arrive at your optimal Solar Powered solution, independant from suppliers all the way.
So, let's get started...
The People's Solar Crowdfunding Platform, together with partners and supporters, have raised over $300,000 for solar projects since 2014.
That is over $1m to be saved on energy, and invested for community benefit, by 2034.
Here are some of the highlights.
FOOTSCRAY COMMUNITY ARTS CENTRE (FCAC)
Footscray Community Arts Centre (FCAC) is a community-engaged, contemporary arts centre working with local, regional and international communities. Combining a mix of crowdfunding, corporate support, philanthropic giving and government grants, they raised $100,000 for solar, battery storage and LED lighting upgrades. Over $15,000 will be saved on energy bills each year, and invested in their community arts program "Call to create".
The Abbotsford Convent is Australia’s largest multi-arts precinct. The former "Convent of the Good Shepherd" is now owned by the Abbotsford Convent Foundation (ACF) – a not-for-profit organisation operating the Abbotsford Convent on behalf of the public. The Convent is home to over 100 studios, two galleries, cafes, a radio station, school and an abundance of green open space. Over $60,000 was raised through crowdfunding, and with corporate match-funding of $60,000 they raised sufficient funds to install a 99kW solar system. Savings will be invested in preserving the iconic Convent gardens.
St Kilda community housing
St Kilda Community Housing (SCH) has provided affordable accommodation options for single people in the St Kilda area for over 25 years. Over the years SCH has worked hard to improve the quality of housing for single people. Over $25,000 was raised through crowdfunding and events, funding a solar and LED upgrade at 56 Jackson St, St Kilda. Savings on energy bills are being invested into T2M - a property maintenance social enterprise which trains and employs people at risk of homelessness.
Through our Parent company, Energy for the People, we have also been working with communities, Social Housing Providers and innovative property developers in transition to 100% renewable energy.
We will be offering partnership and investment opportunities in an exciting range of projects in 2018 ranging from regional solar farms, through to off grid, and grid connected, solar powered micro-grids.
