Solar

Did you know that in Wyndham we have some of the highest use of solar panels in Victoria? Council has some exciting programs, workshops and information sessions to help you get started with your solar journey.

Solar Savers bulk-buy program

Residents are now able access affordable, high quality solar through the new local government-supported Solar Savers bulk-buy program.  Wyndham City Council knows that householders want solar energy but are put off by upfront costs and the complexities of getting the right system. 

Solar Savers makes it easier and more affordable for residents to install a quality home solar system.  The scheme has selected reliable installers and will provide residents with a high-end system at an affordable rate.  It also helps pensioners and low-income households to avoid prohibitive upfront costs by providing access to a low-interest loan.

Joining the program and installing solar will cut your energy bills, reduce your environmental impact, and give you greater peace of mind against future electricity price rises. If your home energy use is high during the day, find out how you can reduce your cost of living with solar power.

Participants in the program may also be eligible for the Victorian Governments Solar Rebate Program.
