Featuring 12 residences and two art and creative studios, the development is being tenanted by members of the Fremantle-based Sustainable Housing for Artists and Creatives (SHAC) cooperative. The housing provider, Access Housing, are selling electricity to their tenants at reduced rates.
"This development provides not only vital housing, but also the ability to ensure that energy is both sustainable and affordable for our residents.
We are delighted to have collaborated with Access Housing and Power Ledger on this development."
Each tenant will save approximately AUD$300 AUD $320 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.
