Solar for Renters


30% of Moreland residents are renting, so typically don’t have access to solar PV. Council asked us to deliver a pilot program to assist tenants in Moreland and their landlords to work together to get solar for their homes.


Through engagement with agents in the area, we approached landlords and tenants to find suitable rental properties to be part of the pilot. We worked with all parties to ensure a smooth process, and helped to manage the contractual arrangements through agents where necessary.


We worked with 3 properties to install solar, allowing tenants to have access to cheaper electricity and landlords to have an improved investment property and a more attractive dwelling for future tenants.
