Solar Program for Moonee Valley


To support residents to reduce their carbon emissions, Moonee Valley’s sustainability team wanted to run another solar bulk buy, since their last ended a couple of years earlier.


We delivered our Energy Advice Service model for Council, which provides residents with access to up to date information and an Australian based call centre of energy advisors to make taking up solar easy. We worked with Council to promote the campaign through various channels and our procurement process also meant that Council had confidence that suppliers had been thoroughly vetted for their products, service, warranty and value.


Over 160 households switched to solar in the first 9 months of the campaign, seeing 543kW of renewable energy being installed in the area, saving over 15,000 tonnes of CO2 and over $128k saved by the community.

“ In an industry as dynamic as solar, we want to ensure that any advice we provide is up to date and meets the needs of our residents. Because AEF offers this service on behalf of many councils, they’re operating at a scale where they can stay on top of industry developments, rather than us doing this in-house.“
