Solar $aver program

It's a win-win in Darebin

Darebin City Council has partnered together with Positive Charge and Energy Matters on an exciting new program called Darebin Solar $aver. Under the program, Darebin pensioners who are eligible for a concession discount on their rates can have a solar photovoltaic system installed at no up-front cost. The cost of the system is paid back over ten years at no interest through their rates payments. In the meantime they are able to makes savings on their energy bill which more than offset the repayments.
