Solar Power Bulk Buying Neighbourhood-closes April 22nd, 2009!

Posted in Visions by on April 16th, 2009

Melbourne residents may have recently heard of our fantastic solar power offer on ABC 774 Radio or seen our editoriials in the Whitehorse Leader Newspaper in the past two weeks.

From our own search for affordable solar power for our own homes, we have formed our own bulk buying solar group-Whitehorse 2 Solar Neighbourhood – which we would like to invite our community neighbours to join us. (Residents of the City of Whitehorse -Melbourne-and surrounding areas).

Our solar neighbourhood takes advantage of huge savings from bulk purchasing and installation of solar power systems as well as making the most of the $8000 Government Rebates before the cut-off time at the end of June.

Timing is crucial as April 22nd is the close-off date for the solar neighbourhood to ensure that all paperwork is submitted to the Government in time to claim the rebates.

Please contact us at solar.schools@  or  healthvitalitynow@  or phone:  0414 656 590 for more information.

Solar Panel Purchase Program

Posted in Policies by Devin Maeztri on April 7th, 2009

To ensure a clear, consistent and appropriate response to growing community expectations, the City of Port Phillip has produced the following guide: SOLAR PANELS | A General Guide and Planning Checklist for Residents and Industry

Produced in collaboration with stakeholders, this document presents the key considerations that the City of Port Phillip considers to be important regarding photovoltaic and solar hot water systems within the municipality, and provides a checklist for those who are required to obtain a planning permit under the Port Phillip Planning Scheme. Where a permit is required, as with other sustainable design initiatives (i.e. rainwater tanks), Council now waives the application fee associated with obtaining a planning permit, with these typically processed through our Fast Track service and completed in less than 3 weeks.

For more information contact our Planning Department on 9209 6424. This information will also soon be included on Port Phillip Online under Sustainable Urban Design.

In collaboration with a number of municipalities, over the next few months the City of Port Phillip is facilitating a solar photovoltaic (PV) panel bulk purchase program to assist residents in reducing household greenhouse gas emissions.
