Discounted solar energy for artists The Fremantle-based Sustainable Housing for Artists and Creatives (SHAC) cooperative comprises 12 residences and two art studios. Developer Access Housing uses Power Ledger's platform to sell SHAC tenants solar-generated electricity at reduced prices.

Project summary

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.

How the technology works

Each tenant will save approximately AUD$300 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.

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.
