Case study overview

Each tenant will save approximately $300- $320 (AUD) per annum, against what they would’ve paid on the Synergy A1 tariff. With solar panels and batteries installed onsite, residents of the creative cooperative development see reduced power bills as they rely less on the mains grid.
