99kW Shoalhaven Heads Community system

Shoalhaven heads is about the most gorgeous place we could think of to do an installation. To top it off, it’s home to one of Australia’s first community owned solar systems.

The project, dubbed Repower One, is being driven by Repower Shoalhaven, a community group formed in 2013 to spearhead the south-coast NSW town’s transition to sustainable energy systems.

The 99KW system is the largest community owned solar system in Australia offering everyday investors a 6.5% return for a 10 year period and the chance to help out the local bowling club, who will be gifted the system after 10 years of community ownership.

Installed in conjunction with Sunny afternoons and Southern Cross Solar what a lovely job for a lovely community. This system was featured in RenewEconomy which you can read about here.
