The Perth Solar City program closes on 30 September 2012. As such, solar discounts and other energy efficiency products and services are no longer available. The Program will now move into an analysis phase to understand which combination of products and services best helped households to reduce their energy use and save money.
Since its commencement in 2009, over 18,000 households within Perth’s Eastern Region have participated in the Perth Solar City program, making it WA's most comprehensive energy efficiency program. In total, 3,515 households received a home eco-consultation; 6,300 households received 12 months of eco-coaching; 670 homes were fitted with a SunPower photovoltaic (PV) system, and 1,150 homes purchased a Solahart solar hot water system. More in-depth details in relation to the programs outcomes will be released once the analysis stage of the project is completed later in 2013.
Thank you to everyone who took part in our Program in some way. Your participation has provided valuable information which will be reported back to the Australian Government through the national Solar Cities program to inform future government policy.
The 2012 Perth Solar City Annual Report is currently underway, and is earmarked for release early 2013. If you are interested in receiving a copy of this report, please visit the Perth Solar City website www.perthsolarcity.com.au.
