Go Solar

Inner West Council is going solar - you can too.

Home owner

If you are an Inner West home owner and interested in going solar, Council offers a number of ways you can start your journey.

  • Council is part of the Our Energy Future program, which provides expert advice for residents on rooftop solar PV, bills, quotes, which technology to choose—anything energy related!
  • The Green Living Centre holds monthly one-on-one solar assessments, allowing you to book in a 45 minute session with a solar expert to discuss whether solar is right for you.
  • SunSPoT is a great online tool to help you calculate how much electricity and money a solar PV system could save your home.

Schools are perfect for solar as they use most of their power during the day while the sun is shining – free energy! 

Inner West schools can now take part in Solar my School, a free Council initiative helping primary and secondary schools to go solar. The program supports schools to access the financial, environmental and educational benefits of clean, locally produced renewable energy.

Join the Inner West Sustainable Schools Network to hear how schools have gone solar and are making their schools more sustainable – in both their operations and in the classroom. The network is a forum for schools to connect, share skills and learning resources, and find opportunities.
