Mitcham Community Energy Plan

A game-changing solar community!

In the quest for sustainability, the Mitcham community has now offset a total of three power plants, pushing the boundaries of what a community can achieve.

The City of Mitcham is no longer just a city; it’s a beacon of inspiration for the nation. As we endeavour to add more chapters to our success story with community batteries, a Mitcham exclusive virtual power plant, and electric vehicle chargers, we move closer to transforming the city into a self-sustaining power hub.

James - Case study

James, a resident of the Mitcham Council area shares his personal journey towards energy independence.

Faced with rising living costs and power prices, they decide to invest in a battery, making their solar panel system more efficient and cost-effective.

James expresses their excitement about joining the Virtual Power Plant where he sells his extra power back to the grid, helping neighbour’s with power during grid stress, reducing reliance on fossil fuels, and earning extra income for himself.

How much did they save?

Watch as five proud homeowners share their experiences with the program and how they are saving on their bills while being part of the local Virtual Power Plant. See how much their solar panel and battery system saved them on their bills!

The 750+ customers that already signed up combine to make a local virtual power plant equal to three fossil fuel power plants.
