The Yarra Energy Foundation has launched Victoria’s first inner-urban community battery, enabling more rooftop solar, improving energy affordability, and alleviating points of congestion in the grid. Under this new model, all energy-users connected to the battery will benefit—including renters—and not only those with rooftop solar.

Community batteries are an exciting new model that empower locals to engage with the clean energy transition and to influence their community’s transformation to a zero-carbon future.
