Members of Surf Coast Energy Group Visiting Ballarat Solar Park
Surf Coast Energy Group’s (SCEG) “Big Solar” project has a goal of establishing 600kW of community owned solar in the Surf Coast Shire. As part of the first stage of our project, we are looking to locate appropriate business or infrastructure site/s where we can install 100kW of solar PV panels. The system would be installed “behind the meter” and would provide power to the business owner directly, selling the electricity at a competitive rate to what they would pay from the electricity grid. Revenue created from energy sales would then come back to the group and be distributed to shareholders as a dividend. We are currently in the early stages of investigation and hoping to raise money for a feasibility study for the project.
